Fostering Sustainability: A Case Study of a Pilot Mentoring Program at a Private University
Marcellino, Patricia Ann
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v19 n4 p441-464 2011
The purpose of this paper is to provide documentation of a one year Pilot Mentoring Program (PMP) that was implemented within a department at a school of education within a private university. PMP was tied to the culture and specific needs of the department. It included seven newly hired faculty members and their mentor who were from various programs within the department. Even though PMP evolved over the course of an academic year, and was labeled a formal mentoring program, it was restricted to a "trial" basis. As PMP evolved, an exploratory qualitative action-research study was conducted.
