Each first year tenure-track faculty member is paired up with an experienced colleague who can act as a mentor to help him/her navigate the process of acclimation to the WPU community. The Center works in conjunction with the Provost's office to assign new faculty mentors who are typically in the same College as the mentees but outside their own Department. CTE provides necessary support for mentorship, and offers lunch vouchers to facilitate mentor-mentee meetings. Mentors are expected to keep in touch with the new faculty member throughout the academic year and meet them at least once each semester. A call for volunteering as mentors is announced by the Provost’s office in early September each year. The Center can also act as an intermediary for any untenured faculty member who would like help securing a mentor.
