Instructor Mentoring Program

UWM Instructor Mentoring Program

To advance excellence in teaching and the success of all students, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) invites you to participate in the UWM Instructor Mentoring Program. First launched in spring of 2019, we have successfully matched over 56 participants.

We are seeking faculty and instructional academic staff from all of our colleges and schools to participate as mentors and mentees. The scope of the mentoring partnership is focused solely on teaching and learning with mentors and mentees determining the investment level they deem appropriate.

All faculty and instructional academic staff are strongly encouraged to participate. Even if you have been an instructor for decades you can benefit from having a mentor (or being a mentor).

Participating as either a mentee or mentor provides an opportunity to:

  • rejuvenate your teaching
  • gain further personal satisfaction and fulfillment from teaching
  • develop a reciprocal relationship with a new colleague outside your department

By sharing our teaching experience, knowledge of students, and successful teaching practices, we can support each other’s growth as an instructor and increase student success.
