Improving the Quality of Chemical Engineering Education
Future Faculty Mentoring Program
The Education Division is applications for the Future Faculty Mentoring Program at the 2013 AIChE Annual Meeting. The Future Faculty Mentoring Program will pair senior graduate students and post-doctoral scholars (MENTEE) and senior faculty members from the Education Division (MENTOR). The formal program will last one year starting and ending at the AICHE Annual meeting and include 8 pairs; however, it is expected that many of these relationships will continue long after. The benefit to the Mentee is gaining perspective, advice, and mentorship beyond their own education and experience from a faculty member outside the university where they are studying. It is expected that this relationship can have high impact and greatly broaden the mentee's vision of the profession. The benefit to the Mentor is the reward of sharing their knowledge and skills, helping others succeed, and supporting the profession.
If selected for this program, you will be required to participate in the following formal activities:
- Attend the kick-off meeting Sunday at the 2013 AIChE Annual meeting
- Meet with your mentee/mentor at some time during the AIChE Annual meeting to develop a mentoring project idea. Reimbursement for up to $10/person for lunch meetings is available.
- Monthly telephone conversations with your mentee/mentor
- Mid-year teleconference with the entire cohort
- Attend wrap up meeting at the 2014 AIChE Annual Meeting
We will pair mentors and mentees based on interests and demographics. Pairs will be identified by October 1. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the program coordinator, Prof. Milo Koretsky, email@example.com. If you are interested in participating, please fill out an application.Application Deadline: September 15, 2013
