This article presents a dynamic method of supporting new faculty through a peer support group led by a facilitator. Group members participate in ongoing selfassessment, individualized goal setting, and activities that reflect the changing needs of the group. We explain the history and activities of the group and also the benefits for institutions considering developing a support mechanism for new faculty.
