Evaluating a Psychology Graduate Student Peer Mentoring Program
Fleck, Christina; Mullins, Morell E.
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v20 n2 p271-290 2012
Research on mentoring outcomes and characteristics of various types of mentoring programs in different settings is limited. The present study sampled 39 graduate students at a small Midwestern university to evaluate peer mentoring in a graduate school setting. Mentoring function and outcome relationships as well as program characteristics were explored. As expected, mentoring functions were highly correlated with various outcomes. Results indicated psychosocial assistance, networking help, and relational outcomes were reported most among participants. Interestingly, pair compatibility and mentor preparation were not found to be essential program characteristics. Program recommendations and future research are discussed. (Contains 6 tables.)
