Mentor/Mentee Pairing, at the request of a junior faculty, FMP can pair them with senior tenured faculty from outside their own department or college. An optimal pairing between faculty outside of one's own focus can be enhanced when fields of interest are affiliated. However, highly successful pairings between faculty with varied fields and backgrounds have also been accomplished.

An optimal and confidential pairing benefits both Mentee and Mentor:
• Mentees receive information on the Manoa community, guidance on departmental processes, development of research and service agendas, advancing and documenting assessment of teaching, guidance in publishing, and advice on dossier preparation, as well as extending and sustaining collegial relations across campus.
• Mentors also receive benefits through association with young researchers on cutting-edge scholarship; potential future collaboration in scholarly work with energetic junior resources; possible future team-teaching with former Mentee; development of writing group members; and, new teaching practices from junior faculty.

• Association with young researchers on cutting-edge scholarship
• Links to others in related scholarly fields of study
• Future collaboration in scholarly work
• Junior faculty are energetic resources
• A good feeling that their experience is knowledgeable and useful in areas that are very difficult for others
• Future team-teaching with former mentee
• Future writing group can develop
• New teaching and learning methods from junior faculty
• And more!

• Information on the university community
• Guidance on handling departmental politics
• Deveoping research and service agendas
• Advancing and documenting assessment of teaching
• Guidance in publishing assistance in manuscript editing
• Composing the dossier for renewal, promotion and tenure
• Increasing contacts across disciplines and departments
