Mentoring

This mentoring program is intended to be a useful way of supporting new faculty members as they adjust to their new environment. Whether the faculty is adjusting to academe itself, settling into their first year at UAMS, or simply settling into Arkansas. Assistance from a well-respected mentor can be an invaluable supplement to the guidance and orientation of all new faculty.
