National Mentoring Month

January is National Mentoring Month, and to celebrate this month the library has created a display featuring books and information about mentoring.

According to author, Curtis Crawford, mentors can be:
  • A learning partner
  • A confidential sounding board
  • A non-judgmental counselor
  • A navigator, one who knows the ropes
  • Someone to provide a reality check
  • A champion for your cause
  • A coach to shore up your weaknesses
  • A facilitator to broaden your networks and perspectives
  • Someone who holds you accountable
  • A guide to help you see beyond the horizon

Stop by the Sullivan University Library and Learning Resource Center during the month of January to learn more about mentoring in the corporate world and the mentor program at Sullivan University.
