Description/Abstract

Most of us learn to be a mentor and protégé using an apprenticeship model during which we adopt characteristics that seem effective and reject characteristics that seem ineffective. But researchers have identified many attributes and behaviors that are worthwhile and others that are dysfunctional in mentorprotégé relationships. In the best interest of student scholars, we have developed a formal college-credit course to promote positive mentor-protégé relationships and facilitate constructive mentoring of student scholars in research. In this course, we advance exceptional matches between faculty and students, and help students develop skills for future academic and career endeavors.
