This book portrays the various ways in which mentoring occurs in higher education. Targeting the stakeholders who benefit from mentoring, namely faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and their professional colleagues, this book supports those who are involved in the mentoring process. It synthesizes the professional literature on mentoring and shares examples of effective practices that address the needs of mentors and their protégés. The book describes mutual benefits of mentoring, along with the characteristics of effective mentors and the ways in which they may support their protégés. The relationships discussed in Mentoring Processes in Higher Education surround mentoring new faculty; peer mentoring for professional development; mentoring through research, scholarship, and teaching opportunities; and mentoring through field experiences, athletics, and student organizations. The book shares the voices of mentors and their protégés as it illustrates how mentoring relationships form the basis for reflection, a transaction of ideas, and growth in knowledge and skills to ultimately advance the institution and field through a collaborative environment in which stakeholders thrive and are valued for their contributions. The cyclical effect of positive mentoring is illuminated through real-life examples that show how protégés eventually become mentors in a continual process of support.

K–12 schools in the United States are suffering from an epidemic of teacher attrition: nearly half of all new teachers leave the field within their first five years, and thousands of teaching positions across the country are going unfilled. What can school leaders do about this persistent turnover and the resulting loss of human potential? In this timely book, Bryan Harris describes the four broad supports that he says are crucial to helping early-career teachers succeed and stay in the profession: comprehensive induction programs, supportive administrators, skilled mentors, and helpful colleagues. He offers practical, research-based strategies to help leaders provide these supports and create a culture of collaboration across the school. The result is a school in which beginning teachers truly thrive as effective practitioners who see themselves successfully helping students learn more every day.
