Equity and Inclusion Leadership Toolkit: Mentoring and Networks
The research is clear. Mentorship is an integral part of faculty success, particularly for minoritized faculty and faculty otherwise marginalized within institutional networks due to discipline (small or emergent fields), introversion, and other characteristics. ECU is a member of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) and through Faculty Success and MidCareer Pathfinders Programs, faculty have access to career coaches. The Office for Faculty Excellence also offers professional development in cultivating a mentorship network.
