New Improvements to the Mentoring Program
by Bethany Kilgore, Assistant Director for the Career Services Center
A total of 57 liberal arts students participated in the inaugural year of Xavier University’s mentoring program. Though it was a success, we’ve been working to improve the program in several ways.
A comprehensive marketing plan—A new marketing plan is in place to bring more awareness of the program to a larger student audience as well as potential mentors.
Sophomore student focus—This yearlong campus-wide programming series will focus on the success of sophomores.
Marketing makeover—Informational documents marketing the program to students, potential mentors, faculty and staff recently got a makeover. You can check out the new branding, including the new mentoring web site, which features information, photos and a new online application for students.
Partnership with the Department of Criminal Justice—This collaborative arrangement will pair juniors and seniors in the criminal justice program with a professional in the criminal justice field. Talks are underway to have a reception for all Criminal Justice mentors and mentees in the spring.
More social events—There are several social events in place this upcoming year with two of the most notable programs thus far being the “Top 10 Series” and the “Women’s Issues in the Workplace Summit,” a mini-conference and etiquette luncheon. More information on these as well as other programs are available on our new web site.
