MENTOR FELLOWSHIPS

The heart of new knowledge creation at a research university lies in the mentoring relationship between graduate students and faculty members. In order to advance the goal of promoting and recognizing good mentoring practices, faculty are invited to apply to participate in the sixth Mentor Fellows program to be conducted by UCITE during the Fall 2014 semester. This series of seminars is designed to engage faculty in thoughtful discussions with other faculty from across the university and explore ideas on mentoring and how to improve the quality of mentoring across the university.

The program has already had nearly 60 faculty (see list below) participate in it and is modeled on the highly successful Learning Fellows program for teaching that has already had about 230 faculty members participate over sixteen semesters. The structure of the program is that of a semester-long, seminar-type course in which faculty read and discuss the research literature on mentoring, and learn how to apply those lessons in their own mentoring relationships. Meetings will occur each week in the Herrick Room of Allen Memorial Library Building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert) on Tuesdays from 12:30-2:00 pm, beginning on August 26 and ending on December 2. Lunch will be provided at each session. There will be no session on October 28 due to the fall break.

Enrollment in the program implies a commitment by the faculty member to attend and participate in all 14 weekly sessions, submit weekly journals, participate in program evaluations, and complete other assignments as may be required. Upon successfully completing the program as indicated, a grant of $2,500 will be created for each faculty member to be used at their discretion for academic purposes during the fiscal year July 1, 2015-June 30, 2016.

Applications should consist of a one-page bio-sketch containing contact information and education and employment history, and a one-page cover letter indicating the number of graduate students (masters and doctoral degrees) the applicant has mentored so far as the students' principal thesis supervisor, any other people they have mentored and in what capacity, what their experience has been with mentoring, what mentoring issues they are particularly concerned about, and what they hope to gain by participating in the program. Applications should be submitted in electronic form (as a PDF document) to ucite@case.edu and should be received at the UCITE office by Friday, July 11, 2014. If an acknowledgment of the application is not received within one week of submission, please contact the UCITE office to make sure the application was received.

Inquiries should be addressed to ucite@case.edu.
