Professional Mentorship Program

The Glenn College Professional Mentorship Program is designed to give graduate students who are entering their last year of classes access to a more experienced alumnus/a who help students broaden their professional networks, enhance their classroom experience and prepare for the job search process.

The mentorship program is an academic year commitment, beginning in October and ending in April; however, many find the experience leads to a rewarding on-going friendship.

Participation Requirements for Alumni Mentors and Graduate Student Mentees

  • Commit to the time and communication required as mutually agreed upon between mentor and mentee (communication can take the form of in-person meetings, phone calls, email or Zoom meetings). Monthly communication is encouraged.
  • Participate in Glenn College mentorship program kick-off luncheon (fall semester) and mini-professional development seminar (spring semester).
  • Complete the end of the year survey.

Matching Process

Glenn College alumni and student services teams review both student applications and mentor profiles to determine mentor/mentee matches. Matches are based on availability, career goals/interests of the student and the professional experience of the mentor.

Note: While we do our best to make to make the best match possible, not all matches will align directly to a specific area of interest.

 

Registration

Registration includes completion of a registration/student profile form, a brief personal statement, your resume and a commitment to monthly communication with your mentor.

Submit Student Registration Form

Alumni who are interested in mentoring a graduate student are asked to email Lisa Frericks and include their resume and/or a link to the LinkedIn profile.
