Mentoring is a learning relationship between students and teachers who collaborate and share mutual responsibility and accountability which provides an opportunity for mutual growth & development.
Holy Cross Institute of Management and Technology has a mentoring system in the college to establish a meaningful relationship between students and teachers thereby enhancing the performance and growth of students. Mentoring support is provided to students in academic and co curricular activities and for emotional support for students.
Mentoring guidelines are the practices suggested for the mentor so as to maintain a meaningful mentoring relationship. The major responsibilities of a mentor include:
The mentors maintain a personal profile and diary for each student and update the information of the mentoring processes regularly. The mentor can seek the support of the trained counsellor of the college in case any psychological needs arise for any mentee out of the mentoring process. Apart from the academic information, the personal information of the mentee is kept strictly confidential and is disclosed to higher authorities (with the permission of the mentee) only in times of additional support.
