Faculty Mentorship Programs
Faculty mentoring takes place in multiple forms, including one-on-one relationships between individuals and group-based mentoring, and includes the mentoring of faculty colleagues, postdoctoral trainees and students. Many departments and schools offer formal mentoring programs for early career faculty. The Office of the Provost offers small group mentoring for new and early career faculty through the Provost's Small Group Faculty Mentoring Program. The Graduate School also offers training for faculty who mentor graduate students and postdoctoral trainees.
Media Engagement Training
Media relations experts from Northwestern’s Office of Global Marketing and Communications host training sessions on everything you need to know about dealing with the media, from how to prepare for interviews to how to best position your work so that journalists want to tell your story.
