Innovative Practices and Developments in Student Mentoring.
Griffin, Ervin V.; Ervin, Nila R.
The training manual for establishing a college student mentoring program was developed to help educators enhance the educational experience of newly enrolled college students, particularly first generation and minority students. The manual first defines the terms associated with the mentor concept in order to ensure congruence in the terminology, and then lists the goals and objectives of a mentor program. Next, general profiles are provided of both the mentor and the mentee along with definitions of the roles of the student mentor and the college faculty and staff. Finally, the training activities for mentors are given along with a discussion of ethical principles encompassed in a mentoring program. Appendixes provide: a sample timetable for program development; a mentee personal data form; a faculty/staff appointment sheet; a mentee program evaluation sheet; and a program evaluation for faculty, staff, and student mentors. Contains 15 references. (GLR)
