New Faculty Mentoring

We are pleased to welcome you to our Benedictine family.  The New Faculty Mentoring Program is designed to provide you with many resources for teaching and scholarship.  The mentoring program is now part of the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, headed by Dr. Cheryl Heinz.  We will update you on opportunities as they arise from this new center.  Benedictine University faculty takes pride in our history of excellence, and we are eager to build learning experiences with you.  Resources for this program are made possible by the Office of the Provost, and they have taken great care in ensuring that the New Faculty Mentorship Program will assist you in a successful beginning of your tenure with us.  Enjoy the meetings, the relationships, new friends and colleagues.

Welcome to Benedictine!
