The importance of mentoring
Mentoring is a partnership through which a mentor supports a mentee to manage his or her own learning, growth and development.
- A mentor can be a student, a staff or faculty member, or an alumnus/alumna
- A mentor serves as a guide and role model
- The relationship is based on a mutual willingness to learn and share

There are many ways to engage with mentorship at U of T - both as a mentor and as a mentee.
The Mentorship Resource Centre is new initiative at the University of Toronto that emerged as a result of the Council on Student Experience (2011).
The Mentorship Resource Centre
Our mission is to be a mentorship hub that:
- Houses a central clearinghouse of mentoring best practice and resources
- Maintains an inventory of mentorship programs at U of T
- Supports the development of new mentoring programs
- Coordinates collaborative training and support for mentors
The Mentorship Resource Network
Coordinators of the various peer-mentoring programs at the University of Toronto will be coming together a few times a term to find areas of collaboration and to collect mentorship standards. For more information, please contact:
