The Mentoring Experience of Nontraditional Students: A Case Study in Higher Education
Langer, Arthur
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v3 n1 Jan-Jun 2008
The purpose of this study was to select an institution that has mandated mentoring as part of its mission and to examine students' perceptions of the mentoring they received. The study selected Empire State College (ESC), a college that is part of the State of New York University system in the USA. ESC is an institution with a 36-year history of mentoring of nontraditional students. The current study represents a follow-up to a prior study that examined the faculty's definitions and theories of mentoring at the same institution. The results of the current study showed that there are significant differences in student alumni perceptions of and experience with mentoring at ESC across a spectrum of gender, race, field of study, and age.
