Mentoring is a key component of Engaged Learning
For the mentor, it is the generous giving of time, knowledge gained over years of experience, and guidance outside of a traditional classroom environment.
For the mentee, it is a rare opportunity to learn directly from the expert, to get the occasional push to keep the project going, and to share the joy of accomplishing something big.
Who's it for?
for the student eager for a one-on-one learning experience with a faculty or staff member expert in the student's project.
In some cases, host supervisors also act as mentors when the student project is located in the community.
