A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:
Faculty Mentoring Initiative - Mentoring is a critical component of supporting a diverse faculty. Launched in 2006, this initiative enumerates best practices for mentoring new and junior faculty. Department chairs and deans are expected to meet individually with junior faculty on an annual basis. Regular discussions concerning mentoring occur in departmental meetings and at Deans' Cabinet. Exit interviews of departing regular rank faculty include inquiry about the adequacy of mentoring during the faculty member's time at Duke.
Development of Future Faculty Special Interest Group (SIG) - administered by Hugh Crumley - Duke University, Instructional Technology Specialist, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Education, Center for Instructional Technology
This is a new SIG in the professional organization the Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE.) This SIG is for professionals and graduate students who are interested in technology and the development of future instructors in higher education. This includes graduate students who plan to go on to faculty careers in higher education in disciplines including, but not limited to, education and the faculty who work with those graduate students.
