Interest in mentoring as a means to foster individual growth and development continues to flourish among researchers, practitioners, policymakers, educators, and the public at large. An impressive body of research has developed that has yielded insight into many aspects of the mentoring process. The majority of mentoring research has concentrated on three different focal points, mentoring of youth, student–faculty mentoring relationships, and mentoring within the workplace. Research has been conducted primarily within each of these three defined areas with limited consideration of similar research on mentoring found across areas. The isolated nature of mentoring research to date inspired the development of the current volume.
