UBalt Connects Mentorship Program: Building a Culture of Mentorship
CONNECTION, CONVERSATION, AND COMPASSION
The UBalt Connects Mentorship Program is designed to go beyond transactional change, and more importantly, focuses on transformational change. We use mentoring as a tool to transition students during their first-year experience to improve student success skills that increase graduation outcomes as well as advance social justice and equity agendas.
Mentors matter at The University of Baltimore. We help our mentors to understand and develop a mentoring style that embodies connection, conversation, and compassion because it builds morale and productivity.
Mentors for UBalt Connects will receive benefits such as:
- Gain professional and personal rejuvenation
- Learn new ideas and perspectives from mentees
- Improve interpersonal, leadership, and listening skills
- Help students reach their potential
Mentor Time Commitment:
- Faculty and Staff volunteers are matched with one UBalt Student for two semesters.
- Volunteers are expected to meet (in-person or virtually) with their mentee at least 2-3 times per semester or as agreed upon.
