No set duration is required for the mentoring relationship between a mentor and mentee. It is recommended that mentors and mentees interact frequently during the first 1-2 semesters. At the end of each semester pairs can decide if it is necessary to continue the mentoring relationship at the same pace, or on an as needed basis, or decide if individual goals have been met.
At any point during the mentoring process, if a mentor or new faculty feels that the relationship is not productive, please contact the Dean of Faculties’ mentoring liaison to be reassigned. Due to the voluntary nature of the program, it is up to the participants to contact the liaison if agreed upon outcomes are not being met. We cannot guarantee the outcomes of the individual pair's relationships. However, participates are encouraged to contact the liaison with reassignment requests, questions, and especially kudos.
