Mentoring Guide 2021

Dyadic research/ academic mentoring model. The dyadic mentoring format is the most time- intensive on the part of the mentor and the mentee. In this format, the mentor is most often a senior faculty member with expertise in the area of scholarship of the assistant professor. This is often the type of mentoring offered to those on training grants and for those in research-intensive positions and can be time intensive for both parties. This type of mentoring may be required to attain promotion to associate professor with tenure on the timeline required by UW Madison.
