For Faculty

Why mentor researchers

Mentoring relationships benefit undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty, develop over time, and enable a commitment to scholarly development and engagement in collaborative inquiry.

Mentoring relationships also encourage:

  • Positive environments, which encourage questions and foster curiosity;
  • Consideration of new or alternative approaches (whether in collecting or mining data, or building a philosophical argument);
  • Constructive, reciprocal feedback on one’s educational advances and the research project’s progress;

Mentoring relationships can also be excellent ways to provide:

  • Guidance for the undergraduate in making important research or related career decisions;
  • Oversight of the undergraduate's research methods and practices;
  • Up-to-date knowledge of available resources and funding;
  • Support in sharing and publicly presenting research;

All of which supports the enjoyment of active participation in research activities.
