Mentorship & Coaching

In 2023-2024, the Main Campus Office for Faculty is piloting a Mentorship Program for New Faculty. Four separate “pods,” organized by broad disciplines and faculty type (i.e., tenure-line, career-line), will meet monthly with a senior faculty mentor for cohort building and to address various aspects of faculty life at the U. In addition, all four pods will meet together quarterly with key leaders from around the university to help set the new faculty up for success at Utah. The wider faculty community will also be welcome to take part in these quarterly events.

As a pilot program, space was limited and is at capacity. If you are interested in participating in this program next year—either as a mentor or as a mentee—please email us at
U-CAN provides opportunities for trainees, faculty, and staff to promote professional effectiveness, career advancement, and a culture of caring and collegiality through coaching. Faculty members can sign up either to be a coach, to be coached, or both!  The program in Health Sciences has been focused on Early-Career Coaching (ECC), and this year Health Sciences is adding a pilot Late-Career Coaching (LCC) program. For information about both ECC and LCC in Health Sciences, click here.

Building on the success in Health Sciences, in 2023-2024 Main Campus is piloting U-CAN. If you are interested in joining a cohort of coaches (brief training provided!), signing up to be coached, or both, please reach out to or
In 2023-2024, we are piloting an On-demand Mentorship Program for department chairs, school directors, and program directors.

Faculty Fellow Mentors are on call and can be reached via e-mail (Click the More Info button below for contact information).
