I’ve been charged (with the help of others) with formalizing our junior-faculty mentoring practices. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I’ve been looking into what other universities do. It’s a little bit of information overload. For example, these sites provide a glut of information. It would be more helpful for me to have case studies — examples of how mentoring is done in various contexts. So, this is the open question: What does your department do? What do you wish your department did?
