Role of the Mentor

A faculty mentor’s responsibilities include:

  • Be aware of your student’s/students’ academic status.
  • Help your student(s) stay on track to become a teacher.
  • Meet with your student(s) to discuss academic progress and participation in program, a least once a semester and sign student/mentor report.
  • Make your student(s) aware of opportunities for involvement such as student organizations and service learning.
  • Serve as a faculty mentor for research, if appropriate.
  • Attend symposia with your student(s) when possible.
  • Stay connected with your student(s) after graduation and serve as a content resource when needed.
