Mentor committees provide a structure and process to foster the academic career development and success of faculty. The Department of Pediatrics requires every assistant professor to have a mentor committee.
As senior faculty continue to navigate their academic careers, they may find ongoing mentor committee guidance and support useful.
Mentor committees support faculty in all academic pathways by:
- Lending personalized guidance and counsel in developing a fulfilling career in the Department of Pediatrics.
- Helping plan for promotion.
Mentor Committee Meetings
New faculty members should set up and meet with their mentor committees within the first 6 months of appointment.
Committees should meet as a group at least yearly. Faculty may hold more frequent meetings if needed or desired, such as when the mentee nears promotion.
Faculty should attach a completed Mentor Committee Summary Form to their annual faculty performance evaluation.
