Our purpose: Helping faculty succeed

The Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) is designed to facilitate the professional development of tenure-track assistant professors. It extends Marquette's principle of cura personalis or “care for the whole person” to these junior faculty. The FMP's core project matches individual assistant professors with a senior faculty member for a confidential, interpersonally supportive relationship that is separate from performance evaluation.

In addition to new faculty, other faculty members may request a mentor. Faculty who are interested in requesting a mentor may submit an email indicating that interest. All information submitted will be confidential.

"What I like about the program is that it indicates seriousness on the part of Marquette about ensuring that junior faculty get as much advice and input from others as possible in the most direct and most confidential manner."
