Краткое описание

Three workshops were conducted by the Coalition of Women Graduate Students at the University of Minnesota. This article describes the mentoring definitions, advice, suggestions, policy recommendations, and administrative responses resulting from these workshops and subsequent mentoring activities. The participants in the workshops identified a lack of support and encouragement from their advisors and faculty, their departments, and the University. In these workshops, a broad discussion of mentoring encouraged students and faculty to see beyond the traditional advisor/advisee mentoring pair. The realization that mentoring benefits both parties encouraged students and faculty to develop additional productive mentoring relationships. Finally, the freedom to plan the beginning, middle, and end of mentoring relationships encouraged students and faculty to resolve tensions that arose from blurred boundaries between friend, mentor, and advisor. Good mentoring relationships for women graduate students involved mutual respect, recognition, encouragement, and both personal and professional support.
