The Mentoring Issue

This month’s special issue of Amstat News is devoted to mentoring and includes information about the many mentoring programs the ASA offers, as well as articles about how to get the most out of mentoring.

Find tips on locating a mentor or becoming a quality mentor, and learn what it takes to create a peer-to-peer mentoring program. Terry Speed also answers the questions, “What Is Mentoring, and Why Is It a Good Thing?

This issue also includes interviews with mentors such as Doug Zahn, Terry Speed, and Mary Gray and with ASA members, who told us how their mentors influenced their work and what they learned from being a mentor.
