The WACUHO New Professionals Committee is happy to announce the launching of this year’s Mentor/Mentee program. This Mentorship program through WACUHO is designed to connect graduate students and new professionals with current, experienced professionals in the field. Each new professional (mentee) will be matched with a seasoned professional (mentor) before the WACUHO
Annual Conference and Exhibition (WACE) and will be encouraged to connect before and during the course of the conference. The deadline to sign up to be a mentor or a mentee is Monday, December 7, 2015.
For New Professionals:
New professionals are graduate students or full-time employees who are still within the first three years of their professional journey. If you are interested in expanding your network and meeting seasoned professionals throughout the WACUHO region sign up to be a Mentee! Mentees will be able to connect every one to two months with their mentor as well as attend a meet and greet with all of the other Mentors and Mentees during the Annual Conference. This is a great opportunity to learn about other schools, practices, and experiences! To sign up to be a mentee just follow this link: http://goo.gl/forms/1nOFzevOPM
For Seasoned Professionals:
We are currently looking for seasoned WACUHO members that are interested in becoming mentors. It is our hope that the mentor and mentee will meet up at least once before and during the conference if not more. It will be up to the discretion of both the mentor and mentee if they wish to continue to communicate after the conference. The purpose of the program is to connect the mentee to resources and knowledge related to WACUHO/WACE, provide the mentee with networking opportunities during the conference, and support the mentee in learning more about working within Student Affairs. If you, or a seasoned professional you know, is interested in mentoring new professionals please forward them this information.
