Mentoring for Mission: Nurturing New Faculty at Church-Related Colleges

Informed by the extensive experience of faculty and administrators, both Roman Catholic and Protestant, who have designed and implemented mentoring programs at their institutions, "Mentoring for Mission" is the only book on mentoring that focuses specifically on nurturing new faculty at church-related colleges and universities.

Offering a theology of mentoring grounded in the scriptures and Christian tradition, the book examines such topics as Christian views of personhood, the role of Christian virtues in mentoring, the value of mentoring in discerning one's particular calling as a teacher and a scholar, and how different emphases of particular Christian traditions shape mentoring at schools founded by different religious bodies. The authors offer practical advice on the nuts and bolts of program design and implementation, on problem-solving for ongoing mentoring programs, and on sustaining an institutional vision as a mentoring community while meeting the daily challenges of institutional life.

"Mentoring for Mission" is necessary reading both for those already involved in administering faculty development programs and for those seeking sound advice on how to design and implement such a program at their own schools.
