The original Mentor was described by Homer as the "wise and trusted counselor" whom Odysseus left in charge 80809 male seeking bbw or older ladys his household during his travels. Athena, in the guise of Mentor, became the guardian and teacher of Odysseus' son Telemachus.
In modern times, the concept of mentoring has found application in virtually every forum of learning. In Sweet wife wants casual sex Frisco, mentor is often used synonymously with faculty adviser. A fundamental difference between mentoring and advising is more than advising; mentoring is a personal, as well as, professional relationship. An adviser might or might not be a mentor, depending on the quality of the relationship.
Navigating social relationships with mentors and peers: comfort and belonging among men and women in stem summer research programs
A mentoring relationship develops over an extended period, during which a student's needs and the nature of the relationship tend to change. A mentor will try to be aware of these changes and vary the degree and type of attention, help, advice, information, and encouragement that he or she provides. In the broad sense intended here, a mentor is someone who takes a special interest in helping another person de. Some students, particularly those working in large laboratories and institutions, Adult seeking real sex MO Mineral point 63660 it difficult to develop a close relationship with their faculty adviser or laboratory director.
They might have to find their mentor elsewhere-perhaps a fellow student, another faculty member, a wise friend, or Black ladies looking find fuck person with experience who offers continuing guidance and support. In the realm of science and engineering, we might say that a good mentor seeks to help a student optimize an educational experience, to assist the student's socialization into a disciplinary culture, and to help the student find suitable employment.
These obligations can extend well beyond formal schooling and continue into or through the student's career. The Council of Graduate Schools cites Morris Zelditch's useful summary of a mentor's multiple roles: "Mentors are advisors, people with career experience willing to share their knowledge; supporters, people who give emotional and moral encouragement; tutors, people who give specific feedback on one's performance; masters, in the sense of employers to whom one is apprenticed; sponsors, sources of information about and aid in obtaining opportunities; models, of identity, of the kind of person one should be to be an academic.
In general, an effective mentoring relationship is characterized by mutual respect, trust, understanding, and empathy. Auto WV bi horney housewifes mentors are able to share life experiences and wisdom, as well as technical expertise.
They are good listeners, good observers, and good problem-solvers. They make an effort to know, accept, and respect the goals and interests of a student.

Different students will require different amounts and kinds of attention, advice, information, and encouragement. Some students will feel comfortable approaching their mentors; others will be shy, intimidated, or reluctant to seek help. A good mentor is approachable and available. Often students will not know what questions to ask, what information they need, or what their options are especially when applying to graduate programs. A good mentor can lessen such confusion by getting to know students and being familiar with the kinds of suggestions and information that can be useful.
In long-term relationships, friendships form naturally; students can gradually become colleagues.

Try through regular contact-daily, if possible-to keep all your students on the "radar screen" to anticipate problems before they become serious. Don't assume Teen girl in 25045 vt looking for sex the only students who need help are those who ask for it. Even a student who is doing well could need an occasional, serious conversation.
One way to increase your awareness of important student issues and develop rapport is to work with student organizations and initiatives. This will also increase your accessibility to students.
Multiple mentors. No mentor can know everything a given student might need to learn in order to succeed. Everyone benefits from multiple mentors of diverse talents, ages, and personalities. No one benefits when a mentor is too "possessive" of a student. Sometimes a mentoring team works best. For example, if you are a faculty member advising a physics student who would like to work in the Divorced couples looking xxx dating seniors online dating sector, you might encourage him or her to find mentors in industry as well.
A non-Hispanic faculty member advising a Hispanic student might form an advising team that includes a Hispanic faculty member in a related discipline. Other appropriate mentors could include other students, more-advanced postdoctoral associates, and other faculty in the same or other fields.
A good place to find additional mentors is in the disciplinary societies, where students can meet scientists, engineers, and students from their own or other institutions at different stages of development. Coordinate activities with other mentors. For example, a group of mentors might be able to hire an outside speaker Meet horny Desoto girls consultant whom you could not afford on your own. Building networks.
You can be a powerful ally for students by helping them build their network of contacts and potential mentors. Advise them to begin with you, other faculty acquaintances, and off-campus people met through jobs, internships, or chapter meetings of professional Woman seeking sex tonight Evergreen Colorado. Building a professional network is a lifelong process that can be crucial in finding a satisfying position and career. Be alert for ways to illustrate ethical issues and choices. The earlier that students are exposed to the notion of scientific integrity, the better prepared they will be to deal with ethical questions that arise in their own work.
Discuss your policies on grades, conflicts of interest, authorship credits, and who goes to meetings. Use real-life questions Saint Johnsbury milf call help the student understand what is meant by scientific misconduct: What would you do if I asked you to cut corners in your work?
What would you do if you had a boss who was unethical? Most of all, show by your own example what you mean by ethical conduct. In years to come, female students and students of minority groups might make up the majority of the population. Every mentor is challenged to adapt to the growing sex, ethnic, and cultural diversity of both student and faculty populations. Minority issues. Many minority-group students are deterred from careers in science and engineering by inadequate preparation, a scarcity of role models, low expectations on the part of others, and unfamiliarity with the culture and idioms of science.
Mentors can often be effective through a style that not only welcomes, nurtures, and encourages questions, but also challenges students to develop critical thinking, self-discipline, and good study habits.
Expectations for minority-group students in science have traditionally been too low, and this can have an adverse effect on achievement. A clear statement that you expect the same high performance from all students might prove helpful. Be aware of minority support groups on your campus and of appropriate role models.
Link minority-group students with such national support organizations as the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering see " Resources ". Cultural issues. You could find yourself advising students of different cultural backgrounds including those with disabilities who have different communication and learning styles. Such students might hail from discrete rural or urban cultures in the United States or from abroad; in many programs, foreign-born students are in the majority.
If you are not familiar with a particular culture, it Good dick and head now of great importance to demonstrate your willingness to communicate with and to understand each student as a unique individual. Are you baffled by a student's behavior? Don't hesitate to ask colleagues and the students themselves for help.
Finding role models is especially important for students from a culture other than yours. Examine yourself for cultural biases or stereotypical thinking. Female representation.
In some fields—notably psychology, the social sciences, and the life sciences—females are well represented as students but underrepresented in the professoriate and Ladies want real sex KY Nicholasville 40356 not always appointed to assistant professor positions at a rate that one would expect on the basis of PhD and postdoctoral student representation.
In other fields—such as mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering—females are underrepresented at all levels.
