Cultural mentoring

Hello all:

I have come across the term 'cultural mentoring' in research articles that note this to be one of the most effective interventions in fostering student learning for intercultural competence (mostly in articles related to study abroad). For instance, the Georgetown Consortium study published in Frontiers by Vande Berg (2009) refers to this.

While I think I have a sense of what this means, I would like to read more about and identify scholarship that defines the term 'cultural mentoring' in more concrete terms. If you have any thoughts/ideas/resources to share I would be grateful.

Best wishes and thanks in advance,
