A mentor is always experienced person, who helps other individuals (mentee) for their overall development. He serves as a positive role model and works as a trusted counselor or guide. Mentor can help mentee for improvement of his or her abilities and skills through various ways by providing guidance. He helps mentee to set educational/career goals and provides encouragement for building self-confidence and self-esteem. Effective mentoring seeks to provide such a presence by establishing a trustworthy relationship between Mentees and Mentor. On the other hand Mentee takes responsibility of keeping regular contact with mentor and actively participates in the relationship and assesses academic/professional strengths, learning and developmental needs, values and short and long-term career goals.
With this above relationship of Mentor with Mentee our college has developed a well structured Mentor –Mentee system since last three years under the name Mentor committee. Such Mentor-mentee system works under Four fold Administrative committees of the college. The system mostly focuses on the needs of the students and tries to minimize or to suggest solutions. All teachers in the college play very important role as mentors and their work since last three years sbecome one resort for the student (mentee), where one can seek knowledge, guidance and support at all times. The students get more benefit through this Mentor-mentee scheme.
In our college the Mentor-Mentee system works as follows:
- The teachers are allotted a list of the students.
- The mentor collects questionaries about needs and all the personal and educational information of the mentee through the given format.
- After study and analysis, Mentors focus on the needs of mentee and select the needy students and update about the student’s progress.
