The practical significance of the theory of mentors' roles including four mentor functions specified in the literature are; career support, intellectual growth, psychosocial development and research supervision, have been investigated empirically in the private and public sector universities. The perceived mentorship behaviour model has been formulated and tested by evaluating 335 PhD faculty members as mentors from 19 public sectors and 180 from 8 private sector universities. The demographic and professional characteristics of the mentors have been analyzed for mean differences by taking a random sample of 515 PhD faculty members, out of which a total of 440 responded to a structured research instrument. Responses have been analyzed using stratified random sampling technique which revealed that the research model is statistically significant in explaining the mentorship functions in terms of demographic and professional characteristics of mentors. However, gender and research supervision have been identified as significantly different in terms of mentorship of the mentees by mentors in private versus public sector universities.
