Peer Circles Mentoring Program

Peer mentoring or "networked mentoring" creates a community of shared knowledge and experiences, meets the diverse needs of faculty mentees, and normalizes cultivating a support system of multiple mentors and sponsors. Mentoring groups are facilitated by senior faculty and comprised of 4-6 early career faculty. We offer affinity-based peer mentoring groups in order to address the specific and unique challenges faced by underrepresented faculty. Senior faculty mentors must attend a mandatory workshop, which will cover how to cultivate trust, facilitate generative, solution-oriented dialogue, and how to address specific needs/challenges of URM faculty.
