Mentorship Grove

The Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) recognizes faculty for their outstanding contributions to inclusive mentoring of junior faculty and future leaders in academic medicine with the annual Faculty Excellence in Mentoring Award. To honor our awardees, OFA plants fruit-bearing trees at Roger's Community Garden on main campus. The Mentorship Grove is emblematic of the enduring strength of mentorship relationships, which provide the foundation for our faculty to flourish. Fruit harvested from these trees supports Triton Food Pantry and other campus eateries.
