Navigating Roles in Mentoring Relationships with Graduate Students.
This paper offers guidelines to faculty on the conduct of faculty-student mentoring relationships, and suggestions of how to maintain ethical relationships with their students. The first guideline states that faculty must acknowledge the power and responsibility of the faculty role. The second explains how faculty need to develop a framework for evaluating the faculty-student relationships. An explanation is provided of what constitutes an ethical and constructive mentor-mentee relationship. Ethical considerations should be an ongoing aspect of professional behavior rather than a concern that arises only in response to ethical problems. Awareness of multiple role issues and experiences in addressing these issues can provide valuable lessons for student's future professional interactions with clients, students, and other professionals.
