Rockquemore: Supporting New & Mid-Career Faculty

In her recent columns on career mentoring Kerry Ann Rockquemore’s Mentoring 101 discusses supporting new faculty and mid-career post-tenure faculty.

“Sink or Swim” decries as a waste of human potential an attitude that refuses to provide novice faculty with support negotiating all the professional expectations (for which graduate school does not prepare one).

In today’s issue “Mid-Career Mentoring” suggests that we also need to provide support for tenured faculty who are “a) are afraid of getting stuck, b) feel seriously stuck right now, or c) have been stuck too long in the middle of the academic ladder.”

Rockquemore provides practical tools for the emerging and the experienced professor in both articles, which are open access on line.
