Hiring each new faculty into any department is an extensive commitment in resources-- time, energy and financial; once hired, every effort made towards professional development and retention of junior faculty serves the entire institution. FMP does not attempt to replace departmental collegiality and mentoring, but can supplement those through confidentiality and commitment, making incremental and critical differences for the individual faculty and ultimately for the entire university community.

Through collegial group events and confidential mentoring from individual senior faculty, junior faculty experience benefits from:
Information on the university community
Guidance on handling departmental politics
Developing 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
Sustaining collegial relationships and friendships
