Mentoring Circles

The ADVANCE Mentoring Circles bring together STEM and SBES faculty women for informal conversations on a broad range of topics, including making connections, networking, commanding respect; classroom management, mentoring, evaluation of teaching; tenure and promotion, career advancement; research and service; work/life balance and satisfaction; salary, compensation, and other support.

Circle members are both ranked faculty members and lecturers, recent hires and seasoned veterans. Circles provide an opportunity for open and confidential sharing of experiences, both successes and needs, providing support for women in their academic careers.
