The Mentor Academy is a 6-month program that provides training and support for mid-career faculty to enhance their knowledge and skills in both research- and career-related mentoring. Mentor Academy participation is also an opportunity to share experiences and problem solve/co-mentor one another to advance their skills.
The 20 hour evidence-based curriculum is adapted from one developed by the National Research Mentoring Network. Six major areas of competency are addressed: 1) maintaining effective communications, 2) aligning expectations, 3) assessing understanding, 4) addressing equity and inclusion, 5) fostering independence, and 6) promoting professional development.
