Founded in research and driven by efficacy
Mentor Collective is committed to developing student success interventions that consistently deliver outcomes for institutions and their students. As a young company, we are actively seeking research partners and opportunities to conduct randomized control studies (RCTs), assessing the impact of our work.
The below white papers are a consolidation of key best practices in academic literature. In the 2017-18 academic year, Mentor Collective has engaged multiple higher education partners and researchers to examine:
The important of race and ethnicity in mentor matching
The impact of peer mentorship on mental health and sense of belonging
Our intervention's impact on student self-efficacy (residential and online adult learners)
Our intervention's impact on international student satisfaction and retention
Our intervention's impact on first-year retention rates (follow-up study to our 2016-17 RCT, demonstrating +4.5% retention)
You will also find a repository of the webinars we've hosted with our partners, in an effort to highlight some of the thought leaders in mentorship. In the past year, Mentor Collective has explored:
Scaling Personalized Support for Online & Adult Learners at Northeastern University's College of Professional Studies
Continuing Learners's Experience with Murray State University, Lesley University, and WashU in St. Louis
Closing the Opportunity Gap in STEM with Indiana University and WashU in St. Louis
