ADVANCE Mutual Mentoring Grant Program

The UMass ADVANCE Mutual Mentoring Grant Program supports innovative faculty led projects that focus on and promote: research collaboration, inclusive communities, and shared decision-making. Team Grants are faculty-driven, context-sensitive mentoring projects, orchestrated by teams that conceive and carry out their own project plans. UMass ADVANCE particularly encourages proposals from faculty members in NSF-supported fields (the College of Engineering, College of Information and Computer Sciences, College of Natural Sciences, or College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, or in the departments of Management in the Isenberg School of Management and Linguistics in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts). 

Mentoring Tools

OFD has developed Mentoring Tools to support faculty career guidance and the creation of formal mentoring structures.
