New Faculty Mentoring Program
The Office of the Provost organizes a campus-wide cohort mentoring program for new faculty. Faculty are invited to participate in the program through third-year review at NDSU. This mentoring program is intended to complement any existing departmental or college mentoring programs. A cohort model with senior faculty overseeing a cohort of new faculty is used. The cohort mentoring program was developed through the National Science Foundation funded ADVANCE FORWARD program.
