The mission of the Faculty Mentoring Committee is to enhance lifelong professional development in teaching, scholarship, and service. The mentoring relationships will support collegiality, effective communication, self-evaluation, and cultural competence, all of which enhance a stimulating and supportive university environment. Please also visit the Mentoring Tip Facebook Page. Open to all WCU, full-time “Academic” and “Administrative” faculty as defined by the most recent Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Faculty Mentoring Committee is distributed among the colleges and organizations: Business and Public Affairs, Education, Health Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts, and Non-Classroom Faculty. Members of the FMC may also serve as mentors. Faculty members on the committee will be nominated by their respective constituencies for three year terms, one-third of the members to be elected each year. Elections for each member will be university wide. New members will be elected in April, and take office July 1st.
