Frequently asked questions
Who can receive mentorship?
All interested faculty are eligible to participate in mentorship programming at FSE. Mentorship is important at all career stages. Currently, most of the focus within M360 is on assistant professors and new faculty with five years of experience or less at ASU. Addressing changing mentorship needs in the middle and later career stages is a priority of the program moving forward.
Who are the faculty mentors in FSE?
M360 Fulton Fellows lead mentorship programming initiatives at FSE, including the design, implementation and evaluation of the mentorship programs for their respective schools.
How long does mentorship last?
By our definition, mentorship relationships are sustained over time and extend beyond a single conversation or workshop. Within this framing, they can last a lifetime or for only a specific period of time during which a mentee seeks guidance on a personal or professional goal, project or objective.
How are mentoring programs structured?
There are various mentorship models, including the traditional one-on-one model, group mentoring, peer or near-peer mentoring, and mentorship networks. Each unit within FSE has developed its own mentorship structure for M360.
What does a mentoring relationship look like?
Mentoring relationships and programs are all different. But often they include a combination of components such as:
- Regularly scheduled meetings/check-ins.
- Career-related guidance.
- Workshops on topics such as grant writing, syllabus development, and research.
- Psychosocial support related to personal matters and how to navigate them in the context of career progression.
- Other situations/topics.
