Join the student Affairs Mentor Program
What is the overall intent of the program?
“I enjoyed learning more about my mentee’s department and her role on campus with students.”
Student Affairs realizes that the foundation of our programs and services is provided by the excellence of our staff. With the completion of one successful year we are ready to start another energizing year for the Staff Mentoring program. It is our hope that through the Staff Mentoring program, we can develop better relationships within our workforce and foster better staff relations. By matching incoming and experienced staff, we hope to provide the information and support to help those new to Student Affairs.
“I have re-learned the value of meeting other individuals from different departments.”
We hope this program will provide newer staff the opportunity to become more familiar with the campus and surrounding communities as well. Since Student Affairs is comprised of many units, it can be difficult to become familiar with each other. We hope that this mentoring opportunity will encourage staff to branch out and discover how vast Student Affairs really is. So if you’re interested, keep reading and uncover for yourself if the Staff Mentoring Program is for you.
We hope by the end of the program you will be better acclimated to your department, Student Affairs, the campus, and the community.
Who is the program for?
The program is geared to both experienced professional staff members and recently hired professional staff within Student Affairs. You decide if you would like to be a mentor or mentee. There are no years of service to qualify. For instance, someone that has been in Student Affairs five years may want to explore possibilities for their next professional step and therefore would sign up to be a mentee. Or that person may want to contribute to acclimating a new staff member to the campus and community and therefore would sign up to be a mentor. You decide based on your professional goals.
