Mentee Tips

Updated

What is the TEAL COP Mentorship? Each year, mentors and mentees are matched based on interests, experience, and course type. These mentorships are informal and mentee-driven, with the goal that it will help with the (re)development and implementation of your projects. If you are interested in joining the TEAL COP, please email [email protected]

Mentee's Roles and Responsibilities

  • Be prepared to share ideas, interests, concerns and course goals.
  • Initiate contact with mentor and schedule meetings.
  • You are responsible for initiating all contact with your mentor.
  • Be curious and ask direct questions about what you most want to know.
  • Understand the boundaries of your mentoring relationship. Remember that your mentor is a professional role model and guide (and not a counselor).
