Harvard Mentoring Project

Review by Julie Timmermans, Instructional Developer, University of Waterloo

This initiative by the Harvard School of Public Health is a collection of valuable resources on mentoring.  Here, you’ll find links to books and movies on the theme of mentoring (http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/chc/wmy/pass/media.htm), and interviews with people, such as Deepak Chopra, Maya Angelou and many others about the important mentors in their lives (http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/chc/wmy/Celebrities/maya_angelou.html).  The site also emphasizes the importance of thanking those who have been mentors to us, as well as serving as a mentor to others.
