Mentoring

Mentors, or information-sharers, assist students with successful university onboarding, coaching and motivation, goal setting, and identifying and achieving developmental milestones. Outstanding graduate students, with a 3.50 GPA or above and at least 12 credit hours, and alumni community members, are invited to participate as mentors. Mentors also consist of students who demonstrate substantial academic and/or professional experience.

Mentees, or information-seekers, are university community members with an interest in educational or professional development. Mentees may join proactively or may be required to participate for a course requirement.

Participants who violate the university’s policies for academic dishonesty, conduct, harassment, discrimination, social media, and community participation may be removed from co-curricular programs at the discretion of the Office of Student and Alumni Affairs.

Mentoring program policies can be accessed through the Mentoring Program Handbook.
