Relational Mentoring of Doctoral Social Work Students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Ross-Sheriff, Fariyal; Berry Edwards, Janice; Orme, Julie
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v37 n1 p55-70 2017
This article explores the distinctive mentoring experiences of social work doctoral students at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). With a philosophical emphasis on social justice, self-determination, racial identity and pride, and social integration, social work faculty at HBCUs mentor African American and other students in PhD programs for academic achievement and successful leadership in the professoriate. The mentoring experiences at HBCUs are underpinned by tenets from relational/cultural theory and the Black feminist theory of "other mothering." Using Howard University as a case study, this article examines relational mentoring experiences of PhD students in preparation for the academy and for leadership in social work education and practice.
