The Mentoring Assistant Professors (MAP) Program is a formal program that matches each new tenure track assistant professor with a more senior faculty mentor outside of the department. The MAP Program provides a positive role model and source of support for each new tenure track assistant professor. Features of the MAP Program include: monthly meetings between the mentor and mentee, mutual classroom visits solely for the purpose of generating conversations about teaching, and availability for confidential consultation about all aspects of LMU. The formal MAP Program is designed to last one academic year, but the mentor does continue to be available and interested in the mentee’s work afterward. New tenure track assistant professors learn details of the program at the end of New Faculty Orientation (see note inside your packets for your Mentor's name and email address).
