Why Should Mentoring End at Tenure? Mentoring for Midcareer and Senior Faculty
Mentoring offers a vital contribution to a successful academic career, but often is perceived as only suitable for new faculty.  Post-tenure mentoring can support faculty in redefining scholarly and teaching goals, thinking outside of the box, and expanding the network of trusted colleagues who can address a variety of career issues.   

In this interactive session, you will identify potential roadblocks to success; explore emerging models of new, more flexible approaches to mentoring for post-tenure faculty; “map” your own mentoring networks; and get started in planning a productive and satisfying mentoring pathway.

Please register here.
