On the Right Track: A Manual for Research Mentors.
King, Margaret F.
Using categories of attention, empathy, boundaries, and empowerment, this booklet examines the complexities of mentoring at each stage of graduate study. The first chapter considers issues in directing the research of graduate students, and the second, "Success of Research-Based Graduate Programs: Corporate Responsibility," considers the importance of collective decisions of the entire graduate program faculty, beginning with the admissions process. The third chapter discusses "Ethical Responsibilities of the Research Adviser and Advisory Committee," and the fourth chapter considers the adviser-advisee relationship and the appropriate boundaries. Chapter 5 discusses the research advisor as mentor, with exploration of empathy and empowerment. (Contains 36 endnotes.) (SLD)
