Professors as Mentors: Golan Shahar

January 6, 2018

It is common to have a mentor when you are in college or graduate school.  As students, we seek a mentor who can guide us to the correct career path, academic path, or life path.  So what do the professors get out of this? Is it just part of their job?  Are they put off by it?  Listen to Professor Golan Shahar talk about his mentor, Sid Blatt, and how he feels about mentoring now that he is a professor.  Click the photo to view Professor Golan speak about mentorship.

The Mentor Project documents the role of mentoring and its powerful impact not only on the mentees but the mentor. During my research what I discovered was astonishing. After nearly45 in-depth interviews all the participants unanimously said being a mentor changed their life. It is now my mission to let others know the value and benefits mentors receive from giving back."
