Case Studies
Instructions: In groups of 5 respond appropriately to these case studies
Case Study # 3
Your mentee is having difficulty making connections with professors and faculty. He often says “I do not belong here,” and “I’m not good enough to be at Brown.” In office hours, he feels tongue-tied and he is struggling to get his assignments in on time. How would you advise?

Case Study # 1
Your mentee is having difficulty finding a time to meet with you because they have 3 campus jobs, TA a class, have an internship downtown, and take 5 classes. They have mentioned in the past that they sleep ~3-4 hours a night. How would you advise?
Things to Remember:

There’s no such thing as a perfect Mentor

Be available & show you care, always

Know your resources!
