Serving as a staff mentor has been very rewarding for me, as I have learned a lot from my mentee. That said, witnessing my mentee flourish has been the most enjoyable part of my experience.
Assistant Director, Counseling Center
Faculty and staff work with a small number of students as a mentor, offering guidance, consistent support and serving as a positive role model—critical factors in the mentee’s retention and overall success at SU. Mentors encourage skill development in the areas of leadership, programming, facilitation, communication, and collaboration; support academic success, career exploration and intercultural exchange.
fullCIRCLE mentors should have a good understanding of the mission and work of the Office of Multicultural Affairs; be familiar with campus resources; care about the issues that affect students of color; and work with students in intentional ways to be successful on campus.
fullCIRCLE is unable to provide monetary compensation to mentors for their time; however, mentors will be recognized for their efforts through banquets, dinners and public events. Limited funding will be available to mentors for engaging mentees in cultural opportunities.
Help our students go further than they think they can; become a fullCIRCLE mentor!
Information about applying to become a Faculty/Staff Mentor for the 2015-2016 academic year will be available in May 2015.
