Responsibilities of the mentee

As professionals, new faculty members have the responsibility to demonstrate success in research and teaching. To assure that they make the best use of mentors, they should keep their mentors informed about any concerns they have about teaching, research or service. They should also use meetings with their mentor to pose pertinent questions about expectations and procedures. New faculty members should be as open as possible with their mentors about problems they are encountering. The mentee should not view the mentor as a sole source of guidance or information about career-related issues.
