Hanging sign: Coming Soon

EDUCAUSE is rolling out an all-new mentoring platform on EDUCAUSE Connect in February 2023. EDUCAUSE Connect will be your one-stop-shop to learn from and collaborate with your peers via community groups, working groups, mentoring, and more.

Access to the current Mentoring Platform (Chronus) will end on December 30, 2022. Remember to save your mentor/mentee contact information and connect on the new platform in February. Stay tuned for more information coming February 2023.

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.

    Diverse Perspectives

    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.
