Resources for Mentoring


The Council of Advisors is a group of experienced faculty members who have volunteered to provide career advising to assistant professors in the regular rank and in-residence series. The Council is made up of former members of the Academic Senate Council on Academic Personnel (CAP), as well as Full Professors. Members represent all areas of the campus, including the School of Medicine. This Council provides both breadth and depth in terms of understanding what is required to advance through the faculty ranks at UCLA.

If you are interested in participating in the Council of Advisors Program, please email Diversity & Faculty Development or call (310) 206-7411
