Mentorship is one of the most important aspects of the faculty-graduate student relationship. As a mentor, a faculty member guides their student through the acquisition of technical and theoretical knowledge necessary to their field of study while also providing general assistance, support, empathy and respect throughout, and often beyond, the student's graduate career.
