New faculty, particularly pre-tenure, receive an invitation this summer from Deputy Provost Dr. Robert Flowers, to opt in to the Interdisciplinary Networking Committee (INC) program, a University level mentoring initiative which complements other mentoring. Mentees and Mentors should save these dates. Dr. Flowers, together with the cognizant department chair and feedback from new faculty members help to make the INC committee matching.
All meetings are in the University Center Room 308 from 12:00 noon - 1:30 p.m. Lunch is provided, confirmatory RSVPs are sent at a later date.

Each new faculty member will be matched with a three-member networking committee comprised of:
•A member of the home department, someone with related research interests.
•Someone from a different department whose work aligns with the new faculty member’s research
interests if possible.
•Another junior faculty member member, from the home or a different department, also with related research interests if possible.
INC program aims to provide helpful advice about developing relationships across campus and externally.
• To provide insight on career development at Lehigh.
• To offer a more robust networking program
• To complement existing college and department mentoring programs.
