Abstract: This paper details a non-tenured faculty peer mentoring program piloted at Uuuuu University.. The Thinking, Writing, Inquiring and Learning (T.W.I.L.) pilot was modeled after a similar peer mentoring program, Support Network for Assistant/Associate Professors (S.N.A.P.), at the University of Xyyyy. The faculty development program offered structured support for non-tenured junior faculty to become more comfortable and prolific in research and scholarly writing. This paper details the process, the product, and advice garnered from the T.W.I.L. pilot.
