Dr. Christine Nganga published an article entitled, "Mentoring as a developmental identity process," in Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning.

Per the introduction:

In this paper, we illuminate how a developmental mentoring framework can be utilized for mentoring a junior faculty member, a tenured faculty member, and the department head, who also served as a mentor to both faculty members. In the process, we provide insights on what we learned through this experience, as we engaged in a mentoring relationship within a complex system of the university where the department head served as a mentor and a supervisor to the two faculty members. In this paper, we specifically address the following questions:

  1. What are the experiences of a new pre-tenured faculty mentee, faculty mentor, and department head when they mutually engage in a developmental mentoring process?

  2. How do the mentoring narratives inform the ongoing process of identity development?
