Faculty Mentor Resources
Welcome to Saint Paul College’s Concurrent Enrollment Program! Faculty Mentors are integral to the success of our Concurrent Enrollment Program. Faculty Mentors verify that High School Concurrent Enrollment Instructors teach a rigorous, college-level course identical to that offered in an on-campus setting.
Faculty Mentor Manual contains information pertinent to Saint Paul College’s Concurrent Enrollment Program.
As a Faculty Mentor, you will be compensated for your time. Article 13 of the 2019-2021 MSCF Master Agreement, Section 10. PSEO/Concurrent Enrollment states, “Payment for assignments for mentoring/monitoring instruction in the college/high school credit programs shall be paid on a pro-rata credit equivalent basis. In no case shall an individual who does not meet minimum qualifications in the credential field of the course be assigned to mentor or do similar work. Mentors for these programs shall be compensated at the rate of one (1) credit for the first time an instructor is mentored in a course and one-half (½) credit each successive time.”
Faculty Mentors complete an
Agreement Form which outlines the expectations as does the Faculty Mentor Manual.
To assure that all standards are the same for Concurrent Enrollment Program courses and corresponding on-campus courses, Faculty Mentors schedule at least one site visit (per semester class) with the High School Concurrent Enrollment Instructors. These visits serve as opportunities to discuss Course Outlines, syllabi, teaching styles, learning styles, assessment standards, grading standards, and grade distribution. Following this visit, Faculty Mentors submit a detailed Concurrent Enrollment Site Visit Report. Faculty Mentors will discuss their thoughts and observations with High School Concurrent Enrollment Instructors prior to submitting any of their Site Visit Reports to Saint Paul College. High School Concurrent Enrollment Instructors are asked to submit a reflection about this visit to their Faculty Mentor and Director of College Partnerships.
In addition to the site visit, Faculty Mentors are responsible for offering discipline specific professional development for each of their High School Concurrent Enrollment Instructors once per academic year. The goal of this activity is to further collegial interaction and enhance instructors’ pedagogy and breadth of knowledge in the discipline. Faculty Mentors complete a Professional Development Report and submit any supporting materials to the Director of College Partnerships.
