Just got tenure? Or promoted in the Fixed Term or Tenure Track? Or working on a promotion? The needs of mid-career faculty members can be complex. More service and more administrative expectations are often the case. Mentoring junior faculty may be expected. But mid-career faculty need mentoring and support as well.  These resources can be helpful in maintaining and progressing in your career as both a mentor and as a mentee.

  • Table of UNC-CH Mentoring Resources
  • Even though you may not be a new faculty member, the Mentoring Map is a useful tool to map out your formal and informal (e.g., peer) mentoring relationships that you have developed in your career—from the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD)
  • Develop an Individual Development Plan (IDP) to outline your teaching, service, and scholarly goals and the potential mentors who can help you to reach these goals. For mid-career faculty, IDPs can be particularly useful to outline goals between your current stage and what you want to accomplish by your post-tenure review.
  • Mentoring Resources On and Off Campus (developed by the School of Medicine): A table of on- and off-campus resources that focus on helping faculty with their mentoring skills as well as helping faculty with their scholarly writing and other faculty development.
  • Forthcoming – Good Practices for Mentoring Guide (developed through the Provost’s Office): This is a guidance document informed by a series of focus groups through the Carolina Seminar Series focusing on women faculty across campus and the mentoring relationships that have positively and negatively affected their success.
  • Use a Self-Assessment Form to track your annual progress in preparation for your annual reviews with your chair.
  • Request a consultation with the CFE to get you started in using any of these tools.
  • Check back for programming to help faculty with using any of these tools.
