    Mentoring Program

    A Mentor is an experienced professional with a specific skill or knowledge in an area that aligns with the Student's developmental need or interest. The mentor serves as a role model and provides guidance and support to the Student Protégé with his or her developmental goals.

    Successful mentors show genuine interest in the needs and development of others. They have strong interpersonal skills, especially in coaching, listening and providing feedback. Furthermore, they must be committed and have the time available to nurture their relationship with the Student Protégé. The types of things that a mentor will be expected to do include the following:

    • Share expertise
    • Offer Encouragement
    • Motivate
    • Offer Challenging Ideas
    • Trigger self-awareness
    • Support Student Protégé in acquiring new skills and competencies
    • Provide effective feedback
