I was watching the movie Skyfall with my family recently when I saw a scene that channels my feelings about mentorship in higher education. In this 007 film, James Bond meets his new quartermaster. What he doesn’t expect is that his quartermaster, named “Q,” will be half his age. “You still have spots,” Bond tells him, using Q’s youthful complexion as a judgment against his abilities. “Age is no guarantee of efficiency,” Q tells Bond. “And youth is no guarantee of innovation,” Bond replies.
