One-to-One Mentoring

About One-to-One Mentoring

This member-only program will help you find and connect with an appropriate mentor to provide guidance, support, and growth in a safe environment. The mentoring system uses an algorithm-based approach, using areas of learning and interests from the profile to provide connection suggestions.

We offer two mentoring experiences: a 3-month ongoing mentorship, or a one-time only meeting ("flash" mentoring).

For your “flash” one-time meeting, have a specific goal for the meeting (e.g., top industry trends, how to handle difficult conversations, career pathway). Expand on what you included in your profile (hobbies, interests, career goals) to get the conversation going.

You can choose your preferred mentoring experience for each mentor, and have two mentors at a time. There’s no lifetime limit on mentorships. View our frequently asked questions below and then get started!

Frequently Asked Questions

A 1:1 mentoring relationship will last up to three months with the option to reconnect.

Flash mentoring is a just-in-time engagement and ends once the one-time meeting has concluded.

Mentoring will be free to EDUCAUSE members in 2021. Non-member participation is only available to EDUCAUSE Institute participants, for a limited time, and to specially-funded programs.

The mentoring platform is SSO enabled. It will populate information from the EDUCAUSE profile. It’s important for this information to be correct upon signing up, or updates to the profile will be needed in both the Chronus platform and also in the EDUCAUSE profile. For first time participants without an EDUCAUSE profile, there may be a 24-hour lag for the system to sync.

There is no limit on the number of individuals that can participate in mentoring from a member organization.
