The Instructional Track Faculty (ITF) Mentoring program assigns each newly hired ITF member to a mentoring committee that consists of other new ITF, along with two senior ITF, for monthly meetings throughout their first year at Michigan Tech. Our goal is to promote ITF success during their first year.
ITF Committees provide well-informed advice and guidance for the new faculty over the first year. Committees are formed based on common position responsibilities(e.g., teaching expectations, service roles, engagement in research). Senior ITF faculty guide and adapt discussions to the new faculty members’ needs with the help of seeded questions and topics. The committee collectively facilitates first year progress, productivity, and satisfaction, and helps to solve any challenges that arise.
ITF Mentoring Committees are available to each newly hired instructional track faculty member in their first year at Michigan Tech.
Cross university networking events are periodically organized for early career faculty. Faculty are also invited to attend other research development and networking opportunities.
Each committee organizes their own meetings and has their own private google folder to track monthly progress and reports.
