There is often a chasm between what is taught in the classroom and what students need to be successful. Mentorship provides a vehicle for provoking greater expectations by students. Mentorship also provides excellent ways to gauge whether or not a student is prepared to be successful in post-baccalaureate endeavors or in the world of work. Unfortunately, mentorship remains a hidden pedagogy in undergraduate education. Institutions that place high value on mentoring build a vital bridge between the traditional classroom and the preparation experience that graduate schools, corporations, businesses, and industry demand.
