Over the past several years, students have found greater success when they ask adults to consult instead of mentor. The term mentor implies a large and long time commitment. The term consultant suggests that the assistance is required only when teams solicit it. To busy professionals, a time commitment with well-defined limits may be appealing and offer a welcome opportunity for professional community service.
