Faculty co-authors are Amy L. Allocco, Maureen Vandermaas-Peeler, Eric Hall, Caroline Ketcham, Mussa Idris, Jennifer A. Hamel, and David J. (Sandy) Marshall.

Through four descriptive case studies, faculty mentors describe the rich cultural contexts in which research takes place; elucidate the main mentoring practices used to support the personal and intellectual development of students; discuss constellations of mentors spanning different institutions, communities and countries; and identify key institutional supports within the ecological framework. Each case highlights pedagogies and identifies practices that can be applied to a variety of research programs.
