Consult Program offers peer coaching and development to faculty

Consult Program

Faculty now have a new resource to request peer coaching and assistance from colleagues on presentations, grant preparation, early career advice and teaching.

The Consult Program is a new program administered jointly through the Offices of Education and Research.

  • Presentations Consult: Offers the opportunity for one-on-one feedback from experienced senior faculty on oral and poster presentations.
  • Grant Preparation Consult: Offers feedback and advice on grant ideas (any stage in process) from experienced grant writers and/or study section members.
  • Early Career Faculty Consult: Assists early career faculty (associates, instructors, assistant professors) on any faculty track who are motivated to enhance their career development or learn more about faculty life at Emory, but don't know where to start.
  • Teaching Consult: Offers an opportunity to observe teaching/education experts or to be observed in a teaching session with follow-up feedback.

To learn more about the new Consult Program or request a consult, visit the Consult Program's website.
