Mentoring revisited: making an impact on individuals and institutions, Issue 57
If we believe that the welfare of individuals and the organization are one and the same, points of compatibility and mutual support must be found and nurtured. If we value the developmental culture of an academic institution, the concerns of individuals for growth, change, advancement, recognition, and support can be brought into harmony with the goals of the organizational culture for stability, continuity, and community. The twenty-first century brings new challenges to higher education. Academic institutions must renew their responsibility to support the developmental needs of all their members. This commitment to support human growth is also part of institutional regeneration. An integrated, comprehensive model of personal and organizational development that includes mentoring for students, faculty, staff, and administrators can make a significant contribution to the best use of human resources, community building, and institutional vitality. This is the 57th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning.
