Faculty Mentors

Faculty and professional staff are instrumental in facilitating and modeling collaborative learning relationships. They generously serve as student mentors, project facilitators, curriculum designers, evaluators, and co-generators of new knowledge, sustaining and advancing UNE’s collaborative learning culture. We welcome everyone to join the collaborative learning conversation.

Faculty mentors provide guidance for students on the Honors Distinction process, Mini-Grant team projects, and more. If you’re a student looking for a mentor who can help meet your interprofessional goals, browse the faculty members listed from your program and make contact with a polite inquiry of interest. If you’re a faculty member interested in becoming a mentor, contact the Interprofessional Education Collaborative at
