Description: This guide offers helpful advice on how teachers, administrators, and career advisers in science and engineering can become better mentors to their students. It starts with the premise that a successful mentor guides students in a variety of ways: by helping them get the most from their educational experience, by introducing them to and making them comfortable with a specific disciplinary culture, and by offering assistance with the search for suitable employment. Other topics covered in the guide include career planning, time management, writing development, and responsible scientific conduct. Also included is a valuable list of bibliographical and Internet resources on mentoring and related topics.

Posted by Anonymous on 4/18/2000
I read parts of this book on the web site of the National Academy Press and decided to order a hardcopy. This is a useful guide for anyone involved in (or contemplating) a career in higher education. The book is a well-organized collection of advice on mentoring undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and junior faculty. It also addresses issues related to cultural bias, sexual harassment, and thesis planning. The guide features a long discussion on career prospects and career planning for students in science and engineering, with a set of examples of non-academic careers.
