The Center for Teaching Excellence and Biblical Foundations for Faith and Learning mentoring program is designed to intentionally support the development of new professors at Southern. The areas of emphasis include Biblical Foundations of faith and learning through the planning of instruction that naturally incorporates our Adventist Biblical Christian worldview, as well as community service, and the culture of Southern, known as the "Southern Experience."

In most cases each school/department will assign a faculty member in the school/department to serve as in-house mentor to new faculty. In-house mentors are responsible for orienting new faculty into the specifics of the school/department. Out of school/department mentors assigned through the CTE will be a confidential liaison and be there to support new faculty through an introduction to the more global aspects of working at Southern.
