Abstract

This qualitative study examined the experiences of entry-level men in student affairs, with particular focus on the function of mentors and role models. Through semistructured interviews and a focus group, 22 participants shared their thoughts and experiences regarding mentorship. Results indicated mentorship to be instrumental in recruitment and retention of entry-level men. Findings also stressed the importance of ongoing mentorship, establishing mentoring relationships with male colleagues, and serving as a mentor to other men.
