The unique relationship between mentors and students informs the
art of teaching and enhances the intellectual vitality of higher
education and quality of teacher and student life. This collection
of original essays presents autobiographical vignettes of important
professors of our time. These essays reflect the appreciation of
the authors-now successful academics-for their teachers/mentors,
whose drive and creativity had such on influence on the careers of
their students. No other collection presents such an
autobiographical and biographical portrayal of college of education
faculty. The essays examine what it means to be a professor in
today's academia, with its erosion of the professoriate and the
emergence of a questionable entrepreneurial pragmatism. The writers
and their subjects explain their vision of the academic life
sustained by a community and perpetuated through the lives of their
teachers and their students, a tradition not only in teaching but
also in mentoring.
