Mentoring: A Prescription for Success
Here at CU-Boulder, we place significant value on mentoring students and it is important that we mentor each other as faculty and staff as well. Undoubtedly, having more experienced people provide advice and support to foster the progress of those with less experience benefits individuals, departments and the entire campus community.
