Mentorship Mission Statement
"Effective mentors observe an individual's traits, behaviors and skills, and then provide guidance that enables the person to understand how their strengths can help them to become better in other areas in their life. The peer mentorship program aims to develop a relationship of support for CASC students' academic, personal, and professional success."
How it Works
The CASC Mentorship Program is in place to help YOU have the best educational experience possible. Mentors can assist you with a number of things and will act as a liaison between you and campus resources. As a mentee, you learn a large amount of information from your mentor and their experiences. As a mentor, you get the satisfaction of helping another student succeed.
- At the beginning of the fall semester, freshman mentees, as well as sophomore and faculty/staff mentors will be recruited
- Mentors and mentees will be asked to complete a personality and interest mentorship form (mentor/mentee matching form).
- By the end of August, mentorship partnerships will be assigned.
- Mentors will be given mentees' contact information and will be required to contact them.
- You must meet at least two times each month for 30 minutes each time (go to a sporting event, eat in the cafeteria, go to free bowling night, etc), starting in September. An optional event will be hosted on campus each month for you to get to know your mentee in a group setting.
- You will be required to turn in a progress report twice each month (after spending time with your mentor or mentee).
- A training for mentors will be held each fall semester.
- Freshman students may sign up to be mentees any time during the fall and spring semesters.
