Mutual Mentoring

Mutual Mentoring

A powerful means for enhancing professional success and well-being
HERS event

The Mutual Mentoring program supports faculty at every career stage in developing robust professional networks that include a variety of mentoring partners.

Mentoring is an effective method for promoting professional socialization, productivity, and satisfaction.  It has been shown to further faculty career development through increased research output, more effective teaching, more dynamic networks, and improved tenure and promotion prospects.  It also fosters social connections with colleagues who can provide advice, encouragement, and feedback.  

The Mutual Mentoring model distinguishes itself from traditional mentoring relationship by encouraging faculty to cultivate collaborative networks of mentors who offer knowledge and share their experience within specific areas, such as research, teaching, tenure, or work-life balance.

We are pleased to announce that nine teams and five individual faculty have received Mutual Mentoring Awards for 2021-22
