212: Holistic Critical Mentorship: Reexamining How We Mentor with Michael A. Hunt
I’m excited to share that today’s episode features Michael A. Hunt who comes on the show to discuss the topic of holistic critical mentorship and reexamining how we mentor.
Michael is a native of Baltimore who has served as a university/college administrator, middle & high school math instructor, musical vocalist, and social justice educator, shaping the lives of today’s leaders. Michael’s work, for the past twenty years, focuses on Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) within institutional structures by encouraging radical inclusion through social justice engagement & holistic partnerships. His personal research bridges spirituality and STEM education by providing culturally nuanced resources for increasing self-esteem and promoting holistic critical mentoring. He embraces that “If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.”
On the show, we learn about Michael’s framework for holistic critical mentoring. He shares the origins and development of this approach to mentoring, which was informed by his service to the Ronald E. McNair Program. Michael also stresses the importance of considering students’ holistic experiences and needs when mentoring them and the role that building community plays in fostering institutional change. He also offers advice for students and professionals seeking to implement this mentoring framework within their practices, policies, and culture.
