Mentoring Matters: Tips for Being a Good Mentee

In the Office of Student Leadership Development, we are recognizing National Mentoring Month  to celebrate why Mentoring Matters. Research shows that mentoring connects students to personal growth and development and helps students recognize that they are not alone in their personal challenges (National Mentoring Partnership, 2017).

Mentoring is a two-way relationship where the mentee learns from the mentor and  the mentor learns from the mentee. As a way to encourage students to be effective mentees, we offer these tips to enhance the success of your mentoring relationships. Attached, you will find a list of Mentee Tips

Tomorrow, we will publish the first student narrative about mentoring. We look forward to sharing stories about why Mentoring Matters at W&M! If you or a student you know is interested in publishing a story, please submit your writing to the form linked here:

We encourage you to stop by the CORT area adjacent to the Scheduling Office to write a thank you note to someone who has been a mentor to you! Thank you notes will be available through the month of January.
