    Senior faculty (Associate and Full Professor rank) wishing to become mentors, please contact Amy Nuttall at



    • All recently hired (as of 7/1) faculty are eligible to participate in JUMP. 
    • The purpose of JUMP is to assure that all Mentees are surrounded by a functioning mentoring team.  Junior faculty will be assigned at least two mentors: a departmental Content-Specific Mentor and a general Career Mentor based on their mentoring needs and their personalized career plan.
    • Mentees will be responsible for scheduling meetings with their Mentors.  Content-Specific and Career matched pairs should meet as frequently as mutually agreed upon, but at least quarterly. 
    • During the first three years of the mentoring relationship, the JUMP Manager will contact Mentees every four months for a brief progress report.  Annual surveys will be conducted of mentoring pairs/teams to evaluate the mentoring partnerships and JUMP. 
    • Contact at any time for assistance with mentoring issues.
