This study of the impact of mentoring relationships on the undergraduate experience of Filipino Americans at Stanford University involved extensive interviews with four male and four female self-identified Filipino/ Filipino American fourth-year undergraduate students. The literature review discussed relevant scholarship on Asian Americans, student development theory, and mentorship. Museus and IfItikar’s (2013) AsianCrit Theory and Nora and Crisp’s (2007) multi-dimensional conceptual framework of mentoring laid the foundation for this project. An in-depth phenomenological, semi-structured interview methodology was used to deepen our understanding of student development throughout college. The results of the study contextualized the ways in which students receive advice, counseling, and support from various mentors. The conclusion discusses implications and suggestions for research, policy, and practice in higher education on how to better support college students through mentorship.
