The Challenges of Designing and Implementing a Doctoral Student Mentoring Program
Holley, Karri A.; Caldwell, Mary Lee
Innovative Higher Education, v37 n3 p243-253 Jun 2012
The relationship between doctoral students and faculty members has been identified as a key component of a successful graduate school experience. In this article, we consider the challenges inherent in designing and implementing a formal doctoral student mentoring program. By bringing together students, peer mentors, and faculty mentors, the program sought to introduce a team-based platform to facilitate student success. We specifically consider how program components might be scaled up across the institution, providing both a personal and supportive relationship for participants as well as an information resource for the broader student population.
