要約

Based on network mapping of 12 in-depth interviews, this exploratory study analyzes the configurations and evolutions of engineering faculty's mentoring networks. Gender, race/ethnicity, and academic ranking have shaped faculty's mentoring experiences. Women and ethnic minority faculty in our study tend to be more proactive in building mentoring networks, and their networks generally consist of more diverse nodes compared to men and majority participants' mentoring networks. Participants' mentoring networks evolve as faculty move up academic ranks—assistant professors have extensive mentoring network with diverse mentor nodes; associate professors experience a shrinking of mentoring networks; and full professors assume the role of mentors in others' mentoring networks. Findings suggest a multidimensional and evolutionary network approach has the potential to offer holistic understandings of mentoring and important theoretical and practical implications to women and minority engineering faculty development and inclusivity.
