More unburied information from the Institute Update:
"The AIA, in cooperation with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), is pleased to present this new edition of the “IDP Mentor Guidelines.” Originally produced by the AIA in the early 1980s, the mentor guidelines were out of print for a number of years. Then, from 1996 to 2002, NCARB published a version of the “IDP Mentor Guidelines” that primarily served as a resource for mentors unfamiliar with IDP requirements.
This new edition is broader in scope, focusing on the benefits of mentoring for interns in the Intern Development Program (IDP), strategies for successful completion of IDP requirements with the help of a mentor, and information about mentoring to help both interns and their mentors. Although addressed to interns and mentors, it may also be helpful for IDP supervisors who provide encouragement to interns on a regular basis."
