1 printed by Needs Analysis In a needs analysis performed on Spring 2008 at UNM, 8 mentors were interviewed. Consistently, mentors complained about the lack of training and guidance. They self-identify the following needs for training: Understanding the nature of the mentor’s role Coping with a close interpersonal relationship with the mentee Being realistic about the attitudes and expectations of the mentoring relationship Accepting responsibility for making judgments and assessments, and communicating these to the mentee Coming to terms with the demanding nature of the role, knowledge and emotional commitment (Momany & Cullingford, 2006)‏ The main purpose of this literature review is to highlight the major categories and subsets of established mentoring best practices for developing a comprehensive mentor training program at UNM. If faculty, professional staff, advisers, and researchers had formal mentoring training, their ability to mentor effectively would increase substantially. Mentoring is an art and a skill that can be learned. Mentor and mentee training cannot compensate for the lack of spontaneity of the mentorship connection, but it makes sure that a mentor and a mentee will exhibit certain appropriate behaviours to make the relationship effective. “Superb mentors are intentional about the mentor role. They select protégés carefully and deliberately offer the career and psychosocial support most useful to protégés Mentoring is one the more important and enduring roles of the successful faculty member. Few professional activities will have a great impact on students and no professional activity will afford the faculty member greater psychological benefit” (Johnson, 2007). 16 MENTORING BEST PRACTICES A review of literature on mentoring, particularly in higher education as well as in business, revealed some common trends of critical, effective practices in mentoring. Sixteen identified best practices are: THE ROLE OF THE MENTOR LITERATURE REVIEW RESULTSINSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN MODEL MENTEE PERCEPTION OF EFFECTIVE MENTORING REFERENCES Crow, G. M., & Matthews, J. L.

A pilot program will be tested with faculty mentors who wish to learn the art and skill of mentoring on Spring The curriculum will be based on the functions, content and methods as described by Crow and Matthew (1998), shown as a diagram from their book (adapted) here: (Mertz, 2004, p. 551)‏ Defining the Mentorship Role Selecting Mentees Structuring the Mentorship Relationship Understanding Mentorship Relationship Phases Ethics, Cross-Cultural and Diversity Sensitivity Establish Trust Communication Skills Development Prepare for Difficult Issues Career Development Skills Academic Development Skills Leadership Development Skills Goal Performance Expectations Psychosocial Development Skills Assessment/Feedback/Evaluation Skills Challenge the Mentee Adult Learning Development (Gibson, 2005, p. 477)‏‏
