Mentor Mentee

“Every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor” - Lailah Gifty Akita

Mentoring is a strategy to provide students with emotional and instrumental support, guidance, encouragement and a better environment in college they need to achieve learning goals. In the context of higher education in educational institute, mentoring can be understood at two levels:

  1. Teacher to Student
  2. Student to Student

Mentor Mentee Scheme is an essential component for a successful career as it bridges the gap between the faculties and students. A mentor plays a vital role in nurturing students and has a positive impact on students’ persistence and academic achievement. A mentee can approach a mentor for both educational and personal guidance. Mentoring is conducted to help the students to strengthen their varied capabilities and to build an interpersonal relationship between the faculties and students.

The pressures to achieve high in academics, to secure jobs and also the sudden onset of COVID like pandemic, creates a lot of anxiety and uncertainties among college students about their success in life. It is a well-established fact that the turning point in the career of students is not the curriculum topics but the relationship with the mentors who may be their peers or teachers or professionals. Shahid Matangini Hazra Govt College for Women always concerns about mentoring the students for academic, social, personal and career guidance. Looking at all these needs of students, the college adopted a Mentor-Mentee system where a group of students (Mentees) are assigned to a faculty (Mentor) from the same Department. The IQAC will hold sessions every year for faculty members on mentoring. The different measures have been taken by the college for its mentorship programme.
