Mentor Registration


The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) Mentor Program facilitates a relationship between current students and their mentors through proactive communication. Its purpose is to better prepare students for successful careers and strengthen the relationship between the college and its volunteers, students, and alumni. It is also the goal of the program to assist students with the transition from college life to the workplace.

The degree and career information provided in the following registration form will be used by students to choose the mentor they feel best fits their needs and goals during the matching process. Matching is done this way to enhance the quality of the relationship and to ensure that both parties will be able to come away from the relationship feeling like it was a meaningful use of their time. Mentors who register are not guaranteed a match, as it will depend on the number and career interests of students who register for the program.

If a student chooses you to be their mentor, you will receive confirmation of the match in early October along with information about the CSE Mentor Program kickoff activities that will take place in late October. More information will be sent to program participants once details are finalized.


  • Notify staff if you have an issue or there is a change in your schedule and priorities as soon as possible.
  • Have a minimum of two contacts, initiated by the mentee, per month between October 2023 and April 2024.
  • Respond to all communications from your mentee or program staff in a timely and professional manner (ideally within 48 - 72 hours). Most program staff communications will be via email, so please plan on checking your email regularly.
  • Represent your career or degree area, reflecting your profession's attitudes, concerns, and insights.
  • Serve as a representative of your employer by introducing your mentee to your company or industry.
  • Approach the program and your mentee with an open mind, professionalism, and respect. Try not to make assumptions about your partner too early as it can take time to build an open and trusting relationship.
  • Assist your mentee in identifying meaningful and realistic goals.
  • Model and coach professional behavior to set the example for your mentee and provide constructive feedback as needed.
  • Communicate effectively and consistently, including sharing your schedule and other priorities.
  • Make an effort to participate in the CSE Mentor Program kickoff activities with your mentee, as they will provide a valuable foundation for building a relationship.
