Book Group: Riding the Academic Freedom Train: A Culturally Responsive, Multigenerational Mentoring Model (Hosted Online via Zoom) In-Person

Many of us mentor without any training about mentoring. The research shows that mentoring can lead to improved academic performance and greater retention of undergraduate and graduate students. It can also help BIPOC students feel a greater sense of belonging, motivation, and academic self-efficacy. But without some clear guidelines on how to mentor, how will we know if we’re mentoring well? Riding the Academic Freedom Train: A Culturally Responsive, Multigenerational Mentoring Model provides a comprehensive and critical guide to the research and a model for culturally responsive mentoring. As our student populations and faculty become more diverse, this book can be a valuable resource for Faculty, Chairs, and Deans who seek to be more intentional about mentoring across diversity, learn more about effective practices, and better understand how faculty and students’ intersecting identities impact this important relationship.

Facilitator: Linda Hasunuma, Assistant Director, CAT
