The NEA Higher Education Advocate April 2009

Multiple Mentors

Mentoring has become a widely used element in the process of introducing a new generation of scholars to our campuses. But for the most part, campuses and departments have used a top-down model. The authors of this issue’s Thriving in Academe have been experimenting on their campus with a different approach. Their program, which they’d like you to consider, is flexible, faculty-driven, and sees mentoring as a two-way street.
