Congratulations to the Faculty Selected as 2022 Cross-Identity Mentoring Community of Practice Participants

May 1, 2022

To support and sustain a diverse faculty body at DU, the Office of the Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs is convening a group of faculty-mentoring leaders for a six-month exploration of cross-identity mentoring at DU. Associate Deans, Directors, and other campus leaders were asked to identify faculty mentoring leaders in their areas, and fourteen faculty were selected based on their recommendations.

Over six months, faculty participants will engage various mentoring approaches discussed in the literature and locate innovative work happening on other campuses—including mentoring dyads, communities, circles, and various other approaches that attend to intersections of gender, race, and identity. The Community will share best practices, ideate new approaches, and foster cross-pollination across disciplines, ranks, series, and lines.
