Mentoring Program

To provide opportunities for Gustavus Adolphus College faculty to gain experience in leading off-campus programs, January Interims taught by a single faculty member may include a second faculty member (mentee) who would accompany the January Interim group and serve as assistant to the faculty instructor (mentor).

Note: There are no Program Development funds available from CICE for the 2012-13 fiscal year. The mentee program is on hiatus until further notice.

The following guidelines apply:

  • The mentee must not be scheduled to teach during the January Interim. Serving as a mentee does not count as teaching a course, so the mentee will normally have a 3-0-3 teaching load.
  • A faculty member who wishes to be considered for the mentoring program must make his/her request (in writing) to the Director of CICE.
  • The request should include the signature of the mentee’s Department Chair signifying approval of the mentee’s involvement in the Mentoring Program
  • The faculty instructor (mentor) must have taught at least one off-campus program prior to the start of the mentoring program.
  • All direct program costs (including travel, accommodations, 2 meals per day) for the mentee will be covered by the program development fund of CICE.
  • A faculty mentee is expected to devote his or her entire effort to the program. Generally, family members may not accompany a mentee.
