Mentor Collective

How it Works

If you are a Direct Admit incoming freshman, you’ll be matched with a peer mentor who will help you acclimate to IU and the O’Neill School. Sophomores and juniors new to O’Neill, as well as first-year grad students, will be matched with an alumni mentor to help with career readiness and exploration. The duration of these mentorships is one semester.

All matches are made based on common interests, background, academics and professional aspirations. To get started, students and mentors register and complete an online survey.

What do mentors and mentees discuss?

Some commonly covered topics include:

  • How will my major impact my professional options?
  • How do I balance the demands of school, responsibilities, and socializing?
  • How can I set myself up for academic, social, and career success?
  • How do I make connections with peers and professional contacts?
