Mentoring is as a dynamic process by which faculty advisors and others work with graduate students to establish and foster structured and trusting relationships. By offering guidance, support, and encouragement, mentors act as advocates and role models for their mentees and are committed to helping graduate students meet their personal and professional goals. By listening actively to mentee’s concerns and aspirations, mentors can help graduate students achieve academic excellence, and advance professionally in career paths of the student’s choosing.
