In collaboration with the Office of Faculty Development and Advancement and with ‘Trained Facilitators’ (in CIMER’s facilitators training) Peggy Wright-Cleveland, Adrienne Stephen, Roxanne Hughes, Lara Perez-Felkner, Mark Weatherspoon, and Jarrett Terry, the Research Mentor Academy was conducted for New Faculty Orientation with 18 faculty, assistant professors and research faculty, new to FSU. These faculty learned effective mentoring strategies for maintaining effective communication, aligning expectations, assessing understanding, and addressing equity and inclusion. A waiting list is available for those interested in future Research Mentor Academy sessions:
