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
