The transition to a new university is exciting, but can also be challenging. Among the things foremost in the minds of most newer faculty are questions like:
These questions and more can be explored with colleagues and mentors who are willing to be part of your support network. But even this part of one’s transition to a new university can sometimes be difficult. How does one enlist a more senior colleague
to be a mentor?
Recognizing that identifying possible mentors is challenging when one is new to the university, IUP faculty have developed two mentoring programs to serve new colleagues!
BLEND serves all first- and second-year faculty by offering professional development workshops and networking opportunities throughout the year. It also provides
additional services to women faculty and male faculty of color.
The Colleague Connection Program matches new faculty who request a “Colleague Connection” with tenure-track faculty members who can provide
information about making the transition to IUP.
IUP is committed to the success of new faculty joining the university! Click on the links above for more information on each of the programs.
