I have always had mentors and still do. The are examples for me and give me advice. Sometimes I got great advice and sometimes advice that I didnt think fit me. In both kinds of situations, having someone help me think about me research, teaching and career choices was always a help.  -Keith E. Whitfield, former Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
