As a result of campus-wide strategic planning efforts, the University at Albany’s Office of the Provost and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) are developing a campus-wide mentoring program for women and faculty of color.
To inform the development of the mentoring program, CTG UAlbany facilitated two focus group meetings of members from the offices along with a range of faculty from various UAlbany colleges and departments.
The discussions and focus groups are just the latest collaborations in the years-long relationship between CTG UAlbany, ODI and the UAlbany President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion that focuses on the university’s strategic planning.
“CTG UAlbany are the experts in facilitation and moderating group discussions, and their help in our effort to create a campus-wide mentoring program for women and faculty of color is incredibly valuable,” said UAlbany’s Chief Diversity Officer and Assistant Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion Tamra Minor.
The Office of the Provost and ODI are leading the development of the mentoring program which will support the University’s strategic efforts to foster an inclusive and diverse faculty.
