Mutual Mentoring Breakfast

Contributed by Kate Castle on 09/18/17 

Please join us Thursday, September 28 from 8:30-9:30 am in the Center for Faculty Excellence, Gannett 316, for Mutual Mentoring at Ithaca College: Moving Beyond One-Size-Fits-All Mentoring.

The Center for Faculty Excellence supports a mutual mentoring model, which encourages the development of a variety of mentoring partnerships to address specific areas of need or competency. Research strongly indicates that mutual mentoring is particularly effective for women in academia and faculty of color, and can make a vital contribution to a successful academic career. Mutual mentoring is faculty-driven, functional, and flexible through its focus on:

-Self-identified needs and goals, rather than generic, one-size-fits-all knowledge
-Multiple, diverse mentors, (peers, near-peers, senior faculty, chairs, same-race/cross-race, same-gender/cross-gender);
-A variety of formats for mentoring (one-on-one, group, face-to-face, online);
-An intentional, proactive, and relational approach to mentoring. 

Please join us for a light breakfast and discussion with faculty who have benefited from our mutual mentoring program. The CFE offers funding to support the formation and meetings of small groups of faculty for mutual mentoring.

If your department or school offers traditional mentoring, we encourage you to take advantage of it while you explore mutual mentoring. 

Please RSVP by Tuesday September 26. 

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Kate Castle at or (607) 274-3734. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
