Mentors’ Behavioral Profiles and College Adjustment in Young Adults Participating in an Academic Mentoring Program
This study aimed to identify mentor behavioral profiles associated with mentees’ perceptions of the quality of mentoring relationship, the usefulness of the mentoring, and their college adjustment during the first year of college. The authors conclude that this study identified four mentor behavioral profiles characterized by various degrees of structure, engagement, autonomy support, and competency support. The findings showed that college students exposed to these different profiles perceived the quality of the mentoring relationship (QMR) differently, as well as the usefulness of mentoring and their social adjustment to college.

This study aimed to construct and validate a tool to measure the supportive behaviors of mentors participating in school-based mentoring programs. The mentor behavior scale (MBS) was developed drawing on the premises of the mentoring sociomotivational model. The questionnaire has good internal consistency coefficients and adequate factorial structure, with the exception of the factor autonomy support. Moreover, three dimensions of the MBS predict mentoring relationship quality and the perceived usefulness of the intervention.
