"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction." - John Crosby

WHY: Mentoring is an attempt to maximize student growth and development – academically, professionally, and otherwise.

WHAT: It is a process in which the mentor offers ongoing support and development opportunities to the student. Addressing issues and blockages identified by the student, the mentor offers guidance, counseling and support in the form of pragmatic and objective assistance.

HOW: Mentoring will be a nurturing process in which the faculty member serves as a role model, teacher, encourager, counselor, and friend to the students with the goal of promoting the student’s professional and personal development.
