Faculty Mentoring

Faculty Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program provides a forum for new faculty to become acquainted with the culture of Framingham State University.  A series of workshops held during both the fall and spring semesters informs new faculty about useful resources on campus and familiarizes them with the professional expectations governing their work.  Program participants are paired with more seasoned faculty who provide information, advice, and guidance.  New faculty also get to know each other and help one another navigate the challenges that accompany a new position.

Our Director of Faculty Mentoring for 2018-2019 is Ira Silver, Sociology.
