Targeting Equity in Access to Mentoring (TEAM) ADVANCE invites faculty (fixed-term, tenure-track, and tenured) to complete our Spring 2021 Mentoring Climate Survey. The survey closes Friday, May 28, 2021. The Mentoring Climate Survey is a longitudinal study distributed twice per year. Faculty should complete it whether they participated in past semesters. To complete: look for reminder emails from TEAM ADVANCE with instructions and survey link (faculty may need to check SPAM/Other folders).

Targeting Equity in Access to Mentoring (TEAM) ADVANCE invites all permanent faculty (fixed-term, tenure-tack, and tenured) to complete our Spring 2021 Mentoring Climate Survey. The survey is open through Friday, May 28, 2021.

To complete the survey, look for reminder emails from TEAM ADVANCE that include instructions and an individual survey link. Reminders will be sent the afternoons of Wednesday, May 26, and Friday, May 28. Faculty may need to check SPAM, Junk, or Other folders for the survey email.

TEAM ADVANCE is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded program (No. 1760187; IRB No. 18-2690) designed to promote a culture of active, equitable, and effective faculty mentoring, with an emphasis on supporting women of color, white women, and other underrepresented faculty groups at UNC-Chapel Hill. Our mission, impact, and ongoing work were recently highlighted in an article appearing in The Well.

The Mentoring Climate Survey is a longitudinal study distributed twice per academic year. TEAM ADVANCE is examining changes over time and we are able to anonymously compare faculty responses across each survey window. Faculty should complete the survey regardless of whether or not they completed the survey in past semesters.

We have shared our Mentoring Climate Survey findings, in aggregate, with deans, chairs, and most recently, the Faculty Council. Our one-pager, Mentoring Climate Survey Early Findings and Impacts, highlights the following:

  • Key findings and possible mentoring needs, as gathered from our Spring 2020 survey
  • Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 trends, by gender, in faculty satisfaction with mentoring
  • Preliminary comparisons, by race and gender, on the impacts of COVID-19 on faculty, as gathered from our Fall 2020 survey

We highly encourage faculty to complete the Spring 2021 survey before the it closes Friday, May 28. Participation will help TEAM ADVANCE to observe trends and continue to understand how faculty are mentored at UNC-Chapel Hill.
