MidWeek Mentor


The Office of Academic Innovation and Effectiveness invites you to an EXCITING and INFORMATIVE series of Faculty Development sessions called the MIDWEEK MENTOR!!

These useful webinar sessions and blog entries will offer information on handling some of the issues important to faculty and staff.


The MIDWEEK MENTOR will be held WEDNESDAYS from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the Provost’s Conference Room (unless otherwise noted).

During MIDWEEK MENTOR we watch a Magna 20-Minute-Mentor video. The compact format is designed for busy schedules, the programs deliver focused, fact-filled examinations of issues important to faculty and staff.

(If you cannot make it to any meeting, you can find the video and materials for the meeting online on our "On-Demand" page, here.)

Please RSVP for individual sessions by clicking the links in the topic schedule below.


A bi-weekly blog serves as a companion to the MidWeek Mentor videos. Blog links will become active as the entries are published.

A full list of MidWeek Mentor blog entries is available here.
