Frequently Asked Questions


1. Can SBCC students be mentored by graduate students or post-doctoral students?
The SBCC program offers opportunity for trainees to provide mentorship to students under the sanction of the Principal Investigator.

2. What steps do I take to terminate a mentorship?
The success of the SBCC program depends on the goodwill of the mentor, who is volunteering time and resources. It is advisable that the mentor outline expectations and consequences to the students at the first meeting. It is at the mentor’s discretion if the relationship should continue if students do not perform to expectations or show lack of respect. The mentor should inform the Supervising Teacher and the Regional Coordinator of his/her decision.
