Resources for Mentors
What can you find in this section?
This section is designed to provide you with timely information that can assist you in working with Fellows and with MU. It is a work in progress, so do check the site periodically for updates. Also, check the site for Fellows and liaisons for additional information.
Your role in helping your Fellows get the school year off to a good start is critical. Click the link, Mentors: First Weeks of School, to learn what past mentors have done. A caveat: This is not a mandatory to-do list but is simply a source to help you decide how best to assist your Fellows. As you’re learning, each Fellow has a unique personality and individual needs, so tailor your approach to your own context.
