JSU ADVANCE announces the launch of its mentoring program beginning in December 2011. The program is established to support tenure and promotion of women faculty in the STEM and social/behavioral science fields. JSU ADVANCE will offer external coaches to women faculty in these fields.
Women faculty will be paired with an external mentor in her discipline from another institution. This JSU ADVANCE mentor will help the faculty member in establishing a research agenda and will help guide the faculty member through the process necessary for advancement, such as research, publishing, networking, collaborating, and presenting at related conferences.
Preference will be given to tenured/tenure-track faculty; however all women faculty in these fields are encouraged to apply.
