The study examined the presence of mentors in and some of their effects on doctoral student education. It was hypothesised that males would be mentored at a significantly higher rate than females; and that a positive overall evaluation of one's graduate experiences at the doctoral level would be positively related to having a mentor. Data were gathered using a survey questionnaire completed by doctoral students. No evidence was found that males are more likely to be mentored than females. It is clear that doctoral students who had experienced a close working relationship with a faculty member had a fuller education than their counterparts who had not.
