Michigan Players


Intended audience: Department Heads, Chairs, Academic Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.

AdvanceRIT again welcomes the acclaimed Michigan Players, this time as “The Chair's Role in Faculty Mentoring” - fashioned as three thematically related vignettes.  This interactive workshop explores the department head’s role in faculty mentoring. In the workshop, participants see a department head discuss a third year review letter with a junior faculty member, welcome a new faculty hire, and check in with an associate professor regarding promotion readiness to the rank of Professor. Developed to showcase positive and potentially problematic mentoring behaviors, these interactive vignettes allow department heads and other academic leaders to think through the ways that they might create a more positive climate for faculty mentoring, both structurally in their department’s policies and inter-personally in the behaviors they adopt and use with their faculty colleagues. This workshop is intended for Department Chairs, Senior Leaders and those who show high potential for holding leadership positions in the future.
