The author argues that the traditional model of one-on-one mentoring is insufficient given the changing demographics of next-generation faculty members, their particular expectations, the limited professional training they receive in graduate school, and the rapidly changing landscape in higher education.
Building a mentoring network with different levels and types of mentoring can help new faculty meet these challenges. A mentoring network that is anchored in an extended new faculty development program and aligns with the needs and expectations of this cohort will better develop the competencies necessary for their success in the professoriate.
