Mentor Resources: Expectations

Expectation of Mentors

Mentors in this program are expected to establish a positive interpersonal relationship based on mutuality, trust, authenticity, empathy, and positive regard.

Expectation of Mentees

Mentees are expected to:

  • Initiate the first contact with their mentor
  • Take responsibility for scheduling meetings
  • Be on time for all meetings
  • Contact mentor in a timely fashion if they cannot make a scheduled meeting
  • Treat the mentor with respect
  • Work with the mentor on their two written assignments



If your mentee is consistently late, consistently misses meetings, treats you with disrespect, or if you have any other problems with your mentee, then contact Molly Dunn and/or read Tips for Dealing with Non-Compliant Mentees.
