Faculty Development Constituency Committee
This work in progress describes a piloted coaching program targeting recently promoted Associate Faculty at Michigan Engineering. As engineering faculty enter the workforce, they are often supported through New Faculty Orientation, start-up funding, Launch Committees, and pre-assigned departmental mentors. It is after they have completed the tenure process that there is often a void of concerted effort to offer enriched career support. Simultaneously, this can be a time when feelings of isolation and disengagement emerge.
The College of Engineering has implemented a program that uses individual coaching as a career development approach. The faculty members are offered coaching service and can craft the engagement frequency as well as the agenda topics in that coaching. This paper will highlight the approach and common themes that emerged from these coaching engagements. Such themes may serve as framework for mid-career faculty development interventions more broadly.
The next phase of the program will engage participants in an optional group coaching experience. The objective of the proposed group coaching program is to reinforce and build on the gains made by faculty who have participated in individual coaching and to emphasize shared experiences.
