The Effects of Mentoring At-Risk Female College Students.
Carroll, Rebecca M.
Female students at Notre Dame College were surveyed to determine whether their perceptions of mentoring relationships are positive. Chapter 1 examines the historical and present day role of mentors and the mentoring relationship. Five research studies that explored mentoring are discussed in chapter 2. Chapter 3 describes the methodology of the present research study, chapter 4 presents the data from the research analysis, and chapter 5 presents the conclusions supported by the study, draws connections from earlier chapters, and discusses implications and future research. Data were analyzed quantitatively; results show that female students were more positive about the mentoring relationship than male students. In addition, students who attended public school reported being more positive about mentoring relationships than students who attended private school. Upper classmen also indicated more positive perceptions of mentoring relationships than lower classmen. The results confirm that perceptions of mentoring reported by female students are positive. Appendixes are: "A Mentoring Questionnaire,""Informed Consent for Interview,""Interview Protocol," and "Abbreviated Interview Responses." (Contains 23 references, 5 tables, and 3 graphs.)
