The book, A Mentoring Guidebook for Faculty: Helping Graduate Students Grow into Respected Professionals and Trusted Colleagues, was developed during the 2007-2008 academic year in an effort led by last year's Graduate Student Senate President Kevin Speer and mentoring committee Chair Craig Rudick. The document was approved by university President Barbara R. Snyder. The Faculty Senate on Thursday enthusiastically acknowledged the efforts of Graduate Student Senate and supported the distribution of the guidebook.
"The hope is that a process of mentoring on campus will become more visible," said Alan Levine, a School of Medicine professor and chair of the Faculty Senate Graduate Studies Committee.
The faculty guidebook can be viewed online. A guidebook for student mentees is expected to be forthcoming.
