The NORDP Mentoring Compact has been developed to guide and support your mentoring relationship. As a milestone in your mentoring journey, please review and discuss this compact together.

This document, like all resources provided by the NORDP Mentoring Committee, is for your benefit.


I commit to:

  • Meet regularly
  • Look for opportunities and experiences to enhance learning
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Honor ground rules we establish
  • Provide regular feedback and evaluate progress

I acknowledge:

  • The mentee drives the relationship, and the relationship is reciprocal in nature
  • Both the mentor and mentee have valuable experiences to share
  • The benefits gained will be directly proportional to the time, energy and commitment invested
  • Mentoring takes a network
  • A facilitator is available to support the mentoring relationship  


As you engage in this mentoring relationship, we encourage you to reflect on the mission, vision and values of the program.
