Mentoring for Success Program

The Mission of the Mentoring Program

The Faculty Development Mentoring for Success Program (MSP) is inspired by the principles of Catholic social teaching to foster a high quality mentoring culture at UST. We strive to promote faculty well-being and success through a mentoring process that is illuminating and supportive. The Mentoring for Success Program reflects three University of St. Thomas convictions: dignity, diversity and personal attention.

Definition of Mentoring

Many scholars have attempted to define mentoring. One of the best definitions of mentoring is the following by Bernice Sandler:

Mentoring involves teaching, coaching, advising, supporting, guiding and helping mentees achieve their goals. Mentors should teach mentees what they need to know and what they should avoid.
