New Faculty Mentors

Senior faculty mentors are valuable assets in helping new faculty understand the context of many new responsibilities. The goals of the New Faculty Mentor Program are to:

- welcome new faculty to the institution and community of Anderson University.

- pair new faculty with senior faculty members for who can answer questions, provide advice, and help familiarize new faculty members with the culture of Anderson University. 

- assist faculty in understanding how to best fulfill their responsibilities. 

- enhance each faculty member’s ability to contribute to the mission of Anderson University in his or her own way.
