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 for fall 2019. The scope of the mentoring partnership is focused solely on teaching and learning with mentors and mentees determining the investment level they deem appropriate.
