Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts Faculty Development Mentor Program
One of the ways the College supports faculty development is a mentoring program that connects faculty seeking mentors with faculty mentors from schools across the College.
Guidance from a faculty mentor in the College can be invaluable for gaining perspective on navigating promotion and tenure, administrative requirements, research, and teaching within one’s school, the College, and Georgia Tech. A mentor relationship affords opportunities for long-lasting, mutually rewarding academic connections across disciplinary and school lines. Mentorship also carries the potential for producing new research connections and interdisciplinary collaborations.
