Roles, Duties & Assignments

Assignment and duties of the procedural mentor and mentee

  • The procedural mentor, a senior member of the mentee’s department, shall be appointed by the department chair. It is the department chair’s responsibility to oversee the success of this pairing, to recognize the time commitment and importance of the mentoring arrangement, and to intervene in the case that the mentor-mentee relationship is not progressing successfully.
  • The chair will, at a minimum, check on the actual interactions twice a year.
  • The mentor will set up “formal” monthly meetings with the mentee and will at a minimum go over the “checklist” reviewing dates/deadlines and responsibilities.

The COE will run workshops to “mentor the mentors” and will organize one workshop each spring for the mentees.
