The Mentoring Alliance Program (MAP) is co-facilitated by Heidi R. Lewis, Coordinator of Early Career Faculty Development Programs and Director and Associate Professor of Feminist & Gender Studies, and Peony Fhagen, Senior Associate Dean for Equity, Inclusion, & Faculty Development.


MAP is committed to strengthening Colorado College’s retention and antiracism efforts by facilitating interdisciplinary and collective support for early career faculty who have much to offer regarding new ideas, energy, and experiences. MAP also supports tenured faculty in developing their capacity for robust, intentional, and interdisciplinary mentoring for pre-tenure faculty in collaboration with all relevant on-campus constituencies.


MAP aims to support a college-wide cultural shift regarding early career faculty development from a disempowering, paternalistic approach to one that honors and recognizes the skills and talents of early career faculty. MAP also aims to situate Colorado College as a premier site for early career faculty development that is as attentive to antiracism and interdisciplinarity as it is undergraduate teaching excellence, quality scholarship, and impactful service.
