The Council of Regents Mentoring Program

HomeStudent NewsThe Council of Regents Mentoring Program

Fontbonne’s Council of Regents is beginning a Mentoring Program that focuses on student professional development. It is designed to give sophomores, juniors, and seniors the skills they need for internships and future careers.

What it is: The Mentoring Program includes acclimating students to a corporate culture, exploring options for a career path based on shared academic interests, and learning from the Mentor’s expertise, personal experience, and connections. It offers the chance to learn what is expected of you in the real world and ways to get there.

What’s in it for me: Learn what it takes to get a great job after graduation. What to do. What to wear. What you need to know. Who can help.

How long it lasts: The program is designed to last one semester and will start in the Spring 2021.

How it works: Students will complete a survey and be matched with a Mentor based on shared academic, career, and personal interests as well as time availability.

What is expected: Student Mentees are expected to commit to this special partnership that is based on a shared focus, mutual trust, and respect. Students are required to keep in regular contact with the Regent Mentor based on a schedule the two of you set up. If you are unable to keep a scheduled meeting, it is your responsibility to let your Mentor know in advance.

Time Commitment: You’ll meet 3-5 times during the semester by phone, video-chat, or in person. You’ll also interact via emails and texts. In addition, all Regent Mentors and Student Mentees will gather as a group for the Welcome/Orientation Event and a number of training workshops during the semester.

How to apply: Complete this survey.

Space is limited. You will be notified by email if you are accepted.

Application Deadline: The deadline to apply is 5 pm on Monday, October 19, 2020.
