Mentorship research that matters

You’re discovering all sorts of new things about your mentorship field and putting in the hours – now it’s time to make headway on your research paper. But what to research?

Topic Sweet Spot

…and move on to matching resources with research needs, learning the lingo in your field, and refining your search strategy as you learn more about your chosen topic. If you’re absent, download the Mentorship Research that Matters handout, then stop by the library so we can discuss it.
