The Role of the Mentor
Both the Mentor and the Mentee are expected to take the initiative and learn and benefit from the mentoring experience. Mentors provide exceptional learning experiences for their Mentees; they have the ability to lead, inspire and motivate their Mentees by expanding their Mentee’s awareness, insight & perspective.
The Mentor needs to be comfortable with the student’s expectations and confident that s/he can meet the student, by realistically assessing his/her own time commitments and experience. In some cases, when a student has no clear goals, the mentor may need to identify the way that s/he feels s/he can best assist the student by offering some options.
Academic Year-Long Mentoring Programs are EOC’s cornerstone initiative. These Programs serve undergraduate and graduate students from all three Baruch Schools: the Zicklin School of Business, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Public affairs. The Academic Year-Long Programs help Mentees define and achieve their career goals by providing Mentors to support, counsel and serve as role models for the Mentees. Mentors may serve as friend and advocate to their Mentees in addition to assisting and advising in their career development process. The Academic Year-Long Programs run from September through May of the academic year. This upcoming year’s program is open to students graduating in 2017.
