Matching Mentors with Students
The EECS mentoring committee analyzes registration information submitted by students and alumni to define optimum student-mentor matches. Subsequently, the Board notifies both the student and mentor of their match and provides them with each other’s background information.
It is the responsibility of the student to arrange an initial meeting with the mentor, either by telephone or in person (preferably). The student should contact the mentor within one week of receiving the mentor’s background information and arrange for an initial meeting within no more than two weeks of receiving the mentor’s background information.
During the initial meeting, the student and mentor should assess their satisfaction with their matches. If the student and/or mentor do not feel the match is appropriate, the mentoring committee is notified and a new mentor is matched with the student.
