Mentoring Champions

Faculty Mentoring Champions are a network of committed colleagues from across basic sciences and clinical departments.

The Faculty Mentoring Champions are advocates, sponsors, and resources for high-quality mentoring of faculty in their areas and across the school. The Champions first met in Spring 2019 and will continue meet to discuss initiatives, share best practices, give feedback, explore opportunities for interdepartmental collaborations, and make recommendations within their departments and to the School leadership.
