Peer Mentor Groups

Peer mentor groups are underway for this academic year! Each small group is matched with a KU faculty facilitator whose role is to convene their group monthly and encourage discussion in an inclusive, non-judgmental, supportive atmosphere. Each facilitator is at least one academic career milestone beyond the members of their group. None of the group members or the facilitator are from the same department. The goals of the peer mentor groups are to provide an additional source of support outside of one’s home department, create connections between faculty members from across campus, and increase awareness of and access to existing KU resources that support faculty in their teaching, research, and service missions.

If you are interested in joining a peer mentor group, let us know by emailing facultydev@ku.edu
