The purpose of the study was to identify if there was a relationship between the perceived quality of mentoring and the intention to quit among executive leaders in the field of higher education. The quality in mentoring (QIM) questionnaire was used to measure the quality of four separate aspects of a mentoring program: management and support (MS), training and support (TS), process and resources (PR), and review and evaluation (RE). The anticipated turnover scale (ATS) was used to measure intention to quit. A convenience sample comprising 71 executive leaders was selected from a target population of 1,500 members of the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE). A quantitative correlational method was used to examine how 41 qualities in mentoring competencies predicted the dependent variable of intention to quit. Based on the evidence, there was not a statistically significant correlation between the anticipated turnover score and the quality in mentoring questionnaire measures--an outcome that may be attributed to the small response rate.
