Estepp, Christopher M.; Velasco, Joseph G.; Culbertson, Avery L.; Conner, Nathan W.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v16 n4 p338-358 Oct 2017
Research has shown the benefits of undergraduate research; however, few studies have examined mentors of undergraduate researchers. The purpose of this study was to investigate the practices of mentors who have successfully mentored Hispanic undergraduate researchers. Findings from this study suggested that mentors should focus on interacting with students, listen to and understand students' interests, be organized, require students to be responsible, and monitor students' work. Recommendations for practice and research have been provided.
