P927: Developing Faculty: Formal and/or informal mentoring

Luis Montes (University of Central Oklahoma, USA)

While some institutions have developed formal mentoring programs for increasing the chances of success for faculty in higher education, other institutions and departments do not have such formal programs. This presentation will discuss examples of both formal and informal mentoring programs, as well as the author’s experiences with both types of mentoring. The presentation will conclude with some recommendations for those desiring to participate in more formal mentoring agreements.
