About Us

The Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) provides professional development support to new, junior and senior Mānoa faculty through the following:


FMP Dossier Library of successful dossiers from a range of faculty of varied classifications and department, available throughout the week and available to borrow over week-ends. Dossiers follow criteria for renewal, promotion and tenure, varying in styles of writing and presentation


Professional development events, including the FMP Summer Dossier Series with seminars and panels on the processes involved in successful professional achievement in academia, including panels of experienced DPC and TPRC members, Department Chairs, College and School Deans, and faculty who have successfully achieved promotion and tenure


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 and confidential pairing benefits both Mentee and Mentor:

  • Mentees receive information on th Mānoa 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.
