Mentoring Practices

Tuesday 3:00pm-4:15pm Burge Union Forum C/D
Round Table Discussion


Caitlin Callahan, Grand Valley State University
An essential characteristic of any mentoring relationship is effective communication. Moreover, while mentoring can take different forms, successful mentoring depends not only on activities or efforts of mentors but also of mentees. In this roundtable, we will discuss tools and skills to improve interactions in mentoring relationships, whether as the mentor or as the mentee. We will also consider how identity may influence needs in mentoring relationships.
