Culturally Responsive Mentoring Program (CRMP)

Aim: The aim of the Culturally Responsive Mentoring Program (CRMP) is to foster a safe, inclusive and supportive scholarly community to assist junior underrepresented faculty (women, ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, etc.) to successfully adjust to the BYU university system and to thrive in their career advancement. CRMP supplements the Faculty Center’s existing mentoring program, focusing on unique organizational phenomenon common among marginalized groups.

Brief description of the mentoring

  • Junior faculty are invited to participate in CRMP. Program participation is voluntary and supplements the existing mentoring program provided by the Faculty Center.
  • Eligible participants are pre-CFS, under-represented faculty (women, ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, international [foreign born], etc.)
  • Junior faculty mentees are matched to faculty with CFS based on their needs and preferences with mentors’ characteristics (cross-gender/ethnicity/department, etc.)
  • Mentoring relationship lasts at least a year.
