What is mentoring?
"A mentor is a person who acts as a sponsor, advocate, guide-or who teaches, advises, trusts, critiques, another to express, pursue and finalize his/her goals." Van Zant 1980
FMP's mentors are specifically trained to meet the needs of CSU, Stanislaus students. Mentors are committed to working with students and enhancing their opportunities for success. The Faculty represents a wide range of academic disciplines. Currently we have thirty seven faculty mentors from sixteen departments.
The faculty participate in on going training for new faculty, mentor recruits and established faculty mentors. Training includes but not limited to, the review and history of the program, team building, cultural awareness, understanding diversity, and interpersonal strategies for improved communication. CSU, Stanislaus faculty mentors agree the "experiential" workshops are successful, helpful, and that the opportunities for discussion also allow them to get to know each other better. In addition to the personal meeting times arranged between mentors and their protégés, the faculty mentors and student protégés meet on a monthly basis that is arranged and provided by the program.
