Interdisciplinary Mentoring Program

The Interdisciplinary Mentoring program is for faculty in their first two years at Boise State.  If requested, each new faculty member will be matched with a mentor who is an experienced faculty member from a discipline different from their own.

Two professors discuss the mentoring program at a workshop.

This partnering across disciplines and colleges provides a safe place for discussion and mutual exchange of ideas and information, free of any conflicts that might arise when mentors are also part of an evaluation process.  The job of the mentor will be to help you become familiar with our campus dynamics, offerings and opportunities, and provide one-on-one communication to help you be successful in your new position.
