“I’ve learned a lot from mentors who were instrumental in shaping me, and I want to share what I’ve learned.” Herbie Hancock

Quick personal story – when I was asked to be a mentor for the program we discuss in this episode, my first thought was: “Am I even qualified to be a mentor?”  After talking to my mentee for about 15 minutes, I knew this was going to be a great gig.  Not due to any superior knowledge on my part, but because the student was just looking for help and I was willing to do so.

Good mentors are guides through unknown landscapes.  They don’t always show us the way, but they can teach us how to find our path and navigate it successfully (or with minimal backtracking).  But how do you find a good mentor?  Well my next guest on Did You Know That? has some ideas.

Dr. Kimberly Chu is the Director of the Executives on Campus (EOC) program at Baruch College (NY, NY).  The program is designed to match undergrad and graduate students with mentors, who ideally work or have worked in the profession the student is pursuing.  Kimberly and her team have built a pioneering program and we talk about why it should be a model for institutions across the country.
