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 the mentor
  • Take responsibility for scheduling meetings
  • Be on time for all meetings
  • To contact mentor in a timely fashion if the mentee cannot make a scheduled meeting
  • Treat the mentor with respect
  • To initiate help with the 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 ShaRonda Cooper and/or read Tips for Dealing with Non-Compliant Mentees.
