Participant Expectations

In order to foster a more meaningful and enriching mentoring experience for myself and my mentor/mentee, I will strive to:
 

  • Connect remotely or in-person at least once per quarter for the coming year.
  • Attend the annual summer quarter Mentorship EDGE networking gathering.

Mentee Commitment

I acknowledge that my drive, goals, and commitment will determine my results.

 Before meeting my mentor, I will complete the following (or create a plan to complete it.)
 

  • Update my resume (For help visit uwb.edu/careers/resumes.)
  • Update my LinkedIn profile (connect to peers, professors, customize URL, etc.)
  • Write a short elevator pitch about myself and my goals that I can email my mentor.

When engaging my mentor I will:
 

  • Be clear and thoughtful about my goals as a mentee.
  • Be proactive in requesting assistance from my mentor.
  • Help make the best use of our meeting time by preparing thoughtful questions in advance.
  • Send a thank you note after our first meeting.

Mentor Commitment

I will use my experience, vision, network, and leadership to help my mentees on their success journey.
 

  • I let my students know some of the ways I can/would like to help them as a mentor.
  • I will let my mentee know how, and how often I can connect with them.
    • For example: X hours per quarter in person/ or via email.
    • (We recommend allocating about one hour per mentee per quarter, or more if mentor/mentee have the desire and availability)
  • I will respond openly and enthusiastically to my student’s questions and requests, as my schedule allows.
