The External Mentoring Program is a new pilot initiative that provides early career faculty in the 2020-2021 Early Career Research Network (ECRN) cohort with an opportunity to work with an external mentor as a complimentary component of participation in ECRN and to faculty mentoring within departments. This program is open to the current ECRN cohort at this time.

Mid-Career Research Investment Program

Developed in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, the Mid-Career Research Investment program invests in high-potential faculty who may have experienced a temporary setback in research due to increased service, need for technical training, a change in research direction, family obligations, health concerns, loss of collaborators, limited access to students, or other factors. Individuals who participate in the Office of the Provost’s Associate to Full Professor program will receive priority consideration. For more information, contact Cynthia Jobe.
