What is a Mentor? Hopeworks ‘N Camden provide an explanation of the Greek roots of the term: http://www.hopeworks.org/mentoring/what-is-a-mentor/. Today the duties of those referred to as “mentors” varies based on institutional goals, professional arenas, internship/externship requirements, and any other number of pragmatic administrative and and academic reasons. Below are a few resources for those looking for mentors. In addition, Philo4Thought is expanding its resources to include professional networking services. We are very excited and hope to have updates available soon.
