The Faculty Mentoring Program at Georgia College is designed to provide junior faculty with guidance and support towards building a successful career at Georgia College. The Faculty Mentoring Program pairs first-year faculty with faculty peers who will work with the junior faculty member to establish professional development goals, develop a network of support, understand departmental and institutional cultures and navigate the retention, tenure and promotion process. The program coordinators will make every effort to pair junior faculty mentees with mentors from their colleges, but in some cases mentees may be paired with mentors from another college. Mentoring pairs are expected to commit to regular meetings, establish professional development goals for the mentee and attend scheduled mentoring events. Beyond these basic requirements, mentoring pairs are free to choose how best to use their time in supporting the junior faculty and staff members' goals and priorities.
