Session Description Both faculty and minoritized students face unique challenges as mentors and mentees in Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs). This panel will anchor the discussion under one main question: since minoritized instructors do not only serve as mentors for minoritized students and minoritized students are not only mentored by minoritized instructors at PWIs, what then is the key to effective mentorship in these spaces?
Discuss the experiences of mentorship from the perspective of both minoritized faculty and students
Identify ways in which to improve the mentoring of minoritized students
