Mentor Collective: Your Mentorship department
Mentor Collective helps universities realize the potential of mentorship by providing the program management and software to deliver efficacy at scale.
With partnerships at over 50 institutions, Mentor Collective brings deep programmatic knowledge, proven student engagement strategies, and mentorship know-how. Mentor Collective's experts have delivered some of the most inventive and complex mentorship programs in the country.
WE FOUNDED MENTOR COLLECTIVE BECAUSE MENTORSHIP PROGRAMS WERE NOT REALIZING THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
Universities are increasingly tasked with providing personal assistance to thousands of students, but grapple with the challenges of universal support, limited resources, and student outcomes and expectations. Mentorship can be a powerful tool to meet these needs, but for the vast majority of institutions, mentorship hasn’t reached its full potential to serve every student with measurable impact and outcomes.
Hard to scale
Many universities have 5-10 pockets of mentorship, but < 5% of students are in persistent mentoring relationships.
Not reaching the most vulnerable populations
To move the needle on student success, mentorship must reach the most vulnerable students. Most programs over-index towards proactive students who already have help seeking behavior.
Software is not enough
Students don't want another platform, they want meaningful relationships. Software helps solve for scale, but not the science of mentorship.
the mentor collective difference
Mentor Collective partners with you and your team to serve as your Mentorship Department, providing everything you need to run a successful program including: program design and management, mentorship community, content library, research team, industry-leading software, and assessment and analytics.
Because of the comprehensive and ongoing support we provide, our partners only need to spend a few hours per week managing large-scale programs, compared to hundreds of hours for in-house programs.
