Mentees

Connect with a trained mentor from UofL by completing the sign up and matching survey from Mentor Collective. You are matched with a mentor based on shared interests, life experiences, and major.

Mentors can help you delve deeper into an academic interest, career field, or activity that you already excel at, whether it’s finding an internship, getting a promotion, succeeding in an advanced class, or being elected to a leadership role. Mentors can also help connect you with resources on campus that are available to you at UofL.

Conversations with your mentor can happen through different means: in- person, text, phone call, video chat, or email.

Benefits of being a mentee:

  • Gain practical advice, encouragement, and support
  • Learn from the experiences of others
  • Increase your social and academic confidence
  • Become more empowered to make decisions
  • Develop your communication, study and personal skills
  • Connect with campus resources
  • Develop strategies for dealing with both personal and academic issues
  • Identify goals and establish a sense of direction
  • Gain valuable insight into the next stage of your university career
  • Make new friends

When will I be matched?

Matching usually occurs on a rolling basis. We try our best to match you as soon as possible, but sometimes we decide to wait until a great fit becomes available. For further details, get in touch with help@mentorcollective.org.
