New Faculty Mentoring

Capital University’s CELT intentionally pairs new fulltime faculty with more experienced faculty in a different department to provide mentoring and support for the new faculty member. The new faculty and their mentors meet at least once each month during the academic year to discuss:

  • Goals and priorities for the year and managing workload,
  • Resources that they can connect their student with to help ensure that their students are successful,
  • Academic advising,
  • A peer review committee and the faculty evaluation process (for tenure track faculty)
  • Opportunities for their students (e.g., Summer Scholars, Symposium on Undergraduate Research, Graduate Research Forum, Boyd Fund),
  • Internal grant opportunities to support their teach, research, or community engagement,
  • Faculty governance and service to the university,
  • Summer work plans, etc.

Preparing Future Faculty

Capital University’s CELT contributes to the Ohio State University’s Preparing Future Faculty program by recruiting faculty to mentor graduate students who are interested in a career at a college or university like Capital University.
