Alumni Mentoring Program

Alumni Mentoring Program

The St. Vincent’s College Mentoring Program connects students and alumni by matching students with professionals in their area of interest who can offer advice and information about career options or other issues relevant to nursing, radiography and other health care concentrations.

The mentoring program is open to all alumni and current students of the St. Vincent’s College.

Alumni: Become a Mentor

You can make an impact on a student’s life by becoming a mentor. Mentors serve as guides to students, answering questions, giving advice, and helping them to learn more about their field of interest and about themselves.

How can I enroll in the program?

If you are an alumni of St. Vincent’s College, working in a healthcare-related field (or recently retired), then you are eligible to mentor a student. Once we receive your application, we will match you with a student whose interests closely match your professional experience.

The only requirement is that you attend a Mentoring Kickoff on at the beginning of the semester where you will have the opportunity to meet your student mentee in person, learn more about the mentoring program, and work with your mentee to develop goals and action steps for participation in the program.

What should I expect as a participant in the mentoring program?

Regular communication will help you and your mentee to get the most out of the program. Mentors/mentee can communicate with one another via email, phone, and visits to the college or your workplace if you so choose. This is not a job placement program. You are not expected to offer employment to the student you are mentoring. You are simply asked to communicate regularly with the student as the two of you see fit. The student may have questions about areas of study, career options, or your career or area(s) of expertise and interest.

Students: Why Participate?
