Caring for the Whole Person: Guidelines for Advancing Undergraduate Mentorship
Cramer, Robert J.; Prentice-Dunn, Steven
College Student Journal, v41 n4 p771-778 Dec 2007
Most commentaries and empirical investigations on mentorship have focused on academic and professional outcomes to date. Drawing on literature from various areas of mentorship, we propose an approach of effective mentorship based on caring and compassion for personal aspects of young adult mentees. As such, we outline characteristics of a successful mentor for undergraduates and provide suggestions for hiring considerations and research.
