EDUCAUSE is committed to providing opportunities for our members to engage, connect, and create community. Mentoring is just one way we can help you do so.
EDUCAUSE Mentoring Program
About the Program
We offer one-to-one online mentoring designed to help you develop and achieve your personal and professional goals. This EDUCAUSE member-only program helps mentees and mentors find and connect with other higher education technology professionals who are seeking guidance, support, and growth in a safe environment.
You can have a mentorship for any length of time, agreed upon by both mentor and mentee. The structure is yours to customize, and EDUCAUSE will provide resources and check-ins along the way to ensure you're getting what you need out of the opportunity.

Why EDUCAUSE Mentoring?
Having a mentor outside your organization can provide a safe space to speak freely and engage in difficult conversations with peers who have faced similar challenges.
The EDUCAUSE Mentoring platform allows members to search affinity fields and other qualifiers, to help mentees match with a mentor with similar or different demographics/attributes.
Mentoring for All
EDUCAUSE mentoring provides for institutions whose IT workforce may be small or for institutions with no formal mentoring program.
