Mentoring is a relationship between a faculty member and a student, in which the mentor guides and motivates the mentee. These mentoring relationships are an important part of the college’s culture. Mentoring can be determined through a formal assignment or informally through interactions in class, office hours, in the hallways, studios or performance spaces. Each department will have a handful of faculty mentors who are identified as primary points of contact for specific concentrations, tracks, specializations or fields within the discipline, but all full-time faculty teaching in a CAMD department have the opportunity to become a student’s faculty mentor.
