Mentoring is a way that experienced faculty and professional staff support the growth and development of new members of the community in the key areas of teaching, scholarly and creative activity, and professional service. The Mentoring Handbook (pdf, 465KB) serves as a guide to both mentors and mentees in a variety of areas including:
  • The purpose, definition, functions, types and phases of effective mentoring
  • Mentoring concerns for underrepresented populations
  • What mentees "wish they had known"
  • "Toolkit" of ideas and information
  • Publications and resources about mentoring
