Mentoring is often looked to by faculty and administrators as a means to integrate and connect undergraduate students with the academic experience. Mentors play a clear role in student success. In Mentoring Undergraduate Students, authors Gloria Crisp, Vicki Baker, Kimberly Griffin, Laura Gail Lunsford, and Meghan Pifer do a great job of analyzing and synthesizing current literature related to all aspects of undergraduate mentoring from definition to theory to practice to informing ongoing research. The compendium of research reviewed provides practitioners and researchers with an evidence-based view of the influence of mentoring on the academic and social integration of undergraduate students.
