Mentor Collective

Mentor Collective

The transition to college can often be overwhelming. To ensure your success, all incoming undergraduate students are expected to join the Mentor Collective.

You'll be paired with a returning School of Education student or alumni mentor based on your background, common interests, academics, and professional aspirations. Your mentor will serve as a resource and support for you during your first year on campus and be ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities.

What do mentors and mentees discuss?

  • How your major will impact your professional options
  • How to balance the demands of school with your other obligations
  • How to set yourself up for academic, social, and career success
  • How to make connections with peers and professional contacts

My mentor helped by being a support system through the SOE. I appreciate the fact that he is there for me if I ever need to talk! It is really comforting and I enjoy receiving emails even if it is once a month to check in!
