“This revolutionized the way new faculty are brought on board outside

their home institutions. I wish this experience were possible for all new

teacher educators. Truly fantastic!”  -    2016 ISNP Cohort Member

Or any member of the 2020 Planning/Delivery Team: Dr. Cindy Watson, Dr. David Arneson, Dr. Keenya Mosley, Dr. Debbie Rickey, Dr. Jerry Rivera-Wilson, and Dr. Carrie Robinson.


Register As a Beginning Professor!   

Full-time college/university faculty members entering years 1-3 are eligible to enroll

Register or pre-register for the 2020 cohort: reserve a place at the summer, 2020, Induction Symposium in Washington, DC, for yourself or a new colleague for only $50.

Deans and Chairs of Education Units: Register Your Beginning Faculty Members.

Assisting beginning faculty members in the initial years of a college or university career is a sound investment.  ATE's ISNP participation provides resources, professional lenses for problem-solving, and instant access to content experts, prepared mentors, and national networking opportunities.

If you are a Department Chair or Dean, send your induction phase faculty beginning years 1, 2, or 3 in full-time professorial positions.

Be a Mentor to New Professors!

Volunteer to be a Mentor! A team of mentors is needed, with representation from diverse areas of specialization.

Mentors and mentees will be matched as closely as possible based on the mentee’s professorial position. Mentors will meet their mentee(s) at the summer conference (preferred - or virtually if unable to attend). If you would like to be an ATE Induction Mentor for a beginning professor, please email Debbie Rickey.

In your email message, please include: (a) contact information -- your name, current position, email, and phone, and (b) your areas of expertise – such as elementary education, educational administration, etc.
