Goodwin College (GC) is a new baccalaureate institution with an expanding faculty for four current academic departments. At the start of the 2014-2015 academic year, Goodwin College implemented an approved Faculty Mentorship Program (FMP) across the four departments. Institutions are using mentoring at an increased rate to bolster faculty development and student retention. The program director matched senior faculty with early-career faculty in the mentorship program for a one year duration. This poster session brings aspects of the proposal, design, approval, implementation and evaluation of year one of formal faculty mentoring at Goodwin College (e.g. challenges and strengths). Lessons learned are explored and described to poster viewers so that they may start or improve their own faculty mentoring programs.
