Mentoring Academy

Mentoring Academy

When an academic culture promotes mentoring, all involved in the process benefit. New faculty who find their vocations strengthened with social as well as career development, to mid-level faculty who are able to both acquire and deliver leadership skills, to senior-level faculty who are respected for their contributions to the academic institution - all of these combined give rise to an environment where unlimited success is possible.

IUPUI Faculty Mentoring Exchange

The IUPUI Faculty Mentoring Exchange was developed by the School of Informatics and Computing on behalf of the Mentoring Academy to facilitate faculty looking for mentors (mentees) with faculty offering to serve as mentors.  Once mentees and mentors are matched, they will work out the details of their mentoring relationship. This process is completely voluntary.  The Exchange is open to any faculty member of IUPUI.  Click here to explore the Exchange.


The Mentoring Academy hosted several campus level programs that provided information about best practices and resource materials to help schools formulate their school or departmental level mentoring programs.  Click here to view the Mentoring Academy program archive. Available resources include assessment tools, best practices, models, outcomes, online research mentoring, and links to other online resources.
