La Salle University’s Explorer to Explorer Mentor Program provides an exciting opportunity for alumni and students to create a mutually rewarding relationship by facilitating the development of students through offering professional advice, assistance and guidance.
Participants are matched based on commonalities in their personal and professional profiles. Similarities in undergraduate profile: major, minor, club activity, and student’s location, help match alumni and students.
Who are the mentors?
Mentors may be alumni from any of La Salle’s undergraduate, graduate, and/or professional schools. As such, mentors have a unique understanding of the La Salle experience and a commitment to helping students achieve success.
Mentors must be at least three years out from graduation, but otherwise, range in age, experience, and realm of expertise. Mentor professions include lawyers, artists, physicians, finance professionals, marketing executives, publishers—the list goes on!
Expectations of the Mentors
The role of the mentor is to inspire, encourage and provide regular, ongoing support. Mentor/mentee pairs determine their own plan for interaction over the course of the academic year. The program has been designed to be flexible for alumni and students. Mentors and mentees have control over the relationship and can determine the best practices for a successful school year.
