Peer Mentoring Groups (PMGs)


Peer Mentoring Groups (PMGs) are comprised of faculty of similar academic rank who meet regularly (e.g., monthly) to discuss career development topics, share their own experiences and advice with each other, and network. PMG participants benefit from a sense of collegiality and opportunities for collaboration outside of one’s division or department.

Program Features

  • Cohorts of 6-8 junior faculty are formed among those faculty who express interest in participating.
  • Groups are formed based on interest in the following topic areas. Interest in other topic areas not listed will also be solicited:
    • Time management
    • Mentoring Others
    • Networking
    • Team Development
  • Cohorts will meet monthly for a period of four (4) months during a time identified to work best among the participants.
  • Each cohort will be facilitated by the Faculty Development Associate for Career Development, Center for Faculty Excellence
  • Other faculty may periodically be invited as guest facilitators to provide presentations
  • Participants will be provided guidance for accessing other career development resources available through the SMHS Center for Faculty Excellence.
  • Participants will be asked to provide feedback at the end of each monthly meeting. A formal evaluation will be administered to all participants at the conclusion of the fourth and final meeting.
