The four phases of mentorship

These resources are designed for current peer mentors or staff, faculty, or students who are running or developing mentoring programs. 

Mentorship is a learning relationship between two or more people, and it typically follows four phases:

  • Preparing: the discovery phase, when you find out if mentorship is right for you.
  • Negotiating: the business phase, when you help your mentee set learning goals.
  • Enabling growth: the work phase, when you support and provide feedback to your mentee.
  • Coming to closure: the assessment stage, where you assess the value of your mentoring relationship and move forward.
