About this Journal Article:

This article outlines the benefits and challenges of co-mentoring for students, faculty mentors, and institutions.

The authors present the co-mentoring model they have developed and a practical guide to co-mentoring, incorporating salient practices of mentoring undergraduate research. In their conclusion, the authors note that a lot of work needs to happen to foster co-mentoring relationships, but if that happens, they can be extremely beneficial to all involved parties.
