"Mentoring is good for the institutional soul. It creates an environment where life-long learning and professional development are woven into the very fabric of the organization. None of us accomplishes great things alone; we all stand on the shoulders of many."

Mary Dankoski
Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development
Lester D. Bibler Scholar and Associate Clinical Professor, Assistant Chair for Academic Affairs, Family Medicine

"Being a mentor is a means of “giving back”; helping the next generation be more successful than the prior one. Mentoring is a two-way street—I learn as much from them as they learn from me."

Randy R. Brutkiewicz, Ph.D
Associate Dean for Graduate Studies
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology

"There are very few things more rewarding than helping another person find success in their own work."

Emily Walvoord
Assistant Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development,
Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics


The goal of this centralized mentoring resource is to create an online “portal” to support local and departmental faculty mentoring programs.  The mentoring menu and toolkit of resources are intended to facilitate individual and departmental mentoring practices and programs. Through this effort the OFAPD endorses the value of mentoring for sustaining a vital faculty and enhancing the academic enterprise of the institution.
