Mentoring | Office of the Provost | Kent State University

At Kent State University we believe that mentoring is important for all faculty. We also understand that no one model is applicable to everyone. Below is a series of resources for faculty and departments including information for mentors and mentees. If you want any additional information please contact Associate Provost, Mandy Munro-Stasiuk (mmunrost@kent.edu)
