Faculty Mentoring Program

The goal is to become the type professor you choose to be, and understand how to balance your faculty path in a manner promoting success.”

The UA Little Rock Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) is designed to help new university faculty successfully navigate their overall development. It is the official mentoring program for faculty within the Office of the Provost. We recently expanded to support the development of all types of faculty on “paths”: 

  1. Tenure Track Path: Full-time faculty eligible for tenure & ranks of promotion.
  2. Professional Instructor Path: Full-time faculty eligible for ranks of promotion.
  3. Adjunct & Visiting Path: Part-time faculty.

Each FMP class runs for one academic year and during that year, the proteges (mentees) benefit from useful workshops run by faculty excellence award winners, resources, and benefit from having a seasoned faculty member as a source to ask questions and learn from.

After successfully completing one year of having official mentoring, proteges are encouraged to continue informal communication with their mentor. Program graduates receive a letter of completion, and copies are sent to their chair and the Office of the Provost. 

If you are interested in participating as either as protégé or as mentor, please contact Dr. David Montague at drmontague@ualr.edu
