Additional programs associated with the CTL include:
Whitman offers two mentoring programs, one for faculty in tenure-track positions and one for faculty with non-tenure-track appointments. Mentors provide teaching and career advice, help socialize new faculty members into the academic culture at Whitman, address questions about promotion and offer social support. Some activities of the mentoring program take place in a group setting while others take place one-on-one. One-on-one mentoring has been linked to higher job performance, and more importantly, increased job and life satisfaction.
If you would like to be matched with a mentor, or are interested in training to become a mentor, please contact Michelle Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org (for tenure-track faculty), or Mitch Clearfield at email@example.com (for non-tenure-track faculty).

The WOCI collaborates with the COWS to provide a variety of services for academic programs across the departments and curriculum.
