    to a less knowledgeable or experienced individual. The many functions
    of a mentor include being a person who guides, teaches, coaches, advises,
    sponsors, counsels, challenges, accepts, confi rms, serves as a role model for,
    protects, and exposes a protégé or mentee to other helpful individuals,
    o􀄞 en also enabling her to be part of a network and to navigate the system
    of academe, career, job, or any other endeavor. The contributors to this

    lives, and they have, in turn, provided mentoring to others to help them
    along their paths in life. Mentoring has held a very vital and viable place in
    their lives, professions, and careers.
