The Fall Mentoring Symposium will feature a morning workshop entitled Rethinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support, and Accountability. This workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion 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. An alternative framework for mentoring focusing on needs assessment will be presented which shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community, and accountability. The workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, underrepresented, and mid-career faculty.

Mindi Thompson, Ph.D., HSP, from the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity will be presenting the workshop. Dr. Thompson is a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a licensed and registered health service psychologist. She is also the head coach for the Faculty Success Program. She has published more than 20 peer-reviewed empirical journal articles using qualitative and quantitative methods, written five book chapters, and coauthored a research design textbook Research Design in Counseling (4th edition).

All schools at IUPUI with funded proposals will present a poster during a moderated poster session beginning at 12:30pm. The moderated poster session will be followed by informal poster presentations by school representatives, with time built in to exchange ideas and answer questions from attendees.
