UCITE invites faculty members to apply for Mentor Fellows program

Faculty members are invited to apply for the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education’s sixth Mentor Fellows program during the Fall 2014 semester.

The series of seminars is designed to engage faculty members from across the university in thoughtful discussions and explore ideas on mentoring and how to improve the quality of mentoring campuswide. The program is a semester-long, seminar-type course in which faculty read and discuss research literature on mentoring, and learn how to apply those lessons in their own mentoring relationships.

Meetings are weekly in the Herrick Room of Allen Memorial Library Building (at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Adelbert Road) on Tuesdays, from 12:30 to 2 p.m., from Aug. 26 to Dec. 2. Lunch will be provided. There will be no session on Oct. 21 due to the fall break.

Enrollment implies a commitment by the faculty member to attend and participate in all 14 weekly sessions, submit weekly journals, participate in program evaluations and complete other assignments. Each faculty member who completes the program successfully will earn a $2,500 grant to use for academic purposes during the fiscal year July 1, 2015-June 30, 2016.

Applications should be submitted electronically (as a PDF document) to ucite@case.edu and should be received at the UCITE office by Friday, July 11. If an acknowledgment of the application is not received within one week of submission, contact the UCITE office to make sure the application was received.
