ACSN Mentor Program

Participate in a fantastic opportunity to help you grow and develop as a professional! The ACSN Mentor Program allows you to connect with fellow members in a meaningful way, while also supporting your work as an alumni career services professional and furthering the strength and success of the profession.

Who this is for:

Mentees: Alumni Career Services professionals who are relatively new to the field of Alumni Career Services, and who want to gain insight into best practices as they grow as professionals in the field.
Mentors: Experienced Alumni Career Services professionals with a few years’ experience in Alumni Career Services, who want to further the strength and success of the profession while also giving back to fellow members and growing as professionals.

How this works:

Timeline: January - August 2022
Matching: Mentors and Mentees are matched for “best fit,” taking into account years of experience, commonality of workplace environment, etc.
Meetings: Mentor and Mentee pairs create a unique mentoring relationship that works best for both partners. The frequency of meetings and topics of discussion will be agreed upon by each unique pair.

Deadline to Apply: Friday, January 14, 2022

The ACSN Mentor Program is a member benefit for professional individual and student members. Eligibility for other member types will be determined on a case by case basis. After becoming a member, you may apply as either a mentor or mentee.

Here’s what past participants have said about the value of our mentor program:

“….most of us have small staffs, it is so good to have colleagues to turn to when making decisions about programming, vendors/products, successes. I found it invaluable.”

“Having perspective from a different institution is valuable.”

“People starting out in this field can benefit from the wisdom of those who have been doing this for years. No need to reinvent the wheel!”

“I love that ACSN is taking the lead and this would not have happened if ACSN didn't put it together so THANK YOU!”
