Re-Thinking Mentoring: How To Build Communities Of
 Inclusion, Support & Accountability

facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD

  • Does your department, college or university effectively mentor pre-tenure faculty?
  • How can you work towards providing faculty at different stages of career development meaningful mentoring relationships and experiences?
  • How to does mentoring differ for pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty?
  • How can institutions provide effective mentoring for under-represented faculty?

This multi-week course is designed to start a new conversation about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community and accountability.


About the Facilitator:

Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD, is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of two important books: Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S., writes an advice column for Inside Higher Ed, and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
