Academic Impressions Webcast: Attracting Mentors for Minority Students: Strategies and Best Practices

Learn strategies to recruit and retain faculty and staff mentors in your mentoring program for minority students.

Departments charged with leading efforts to retain minority students are often expected to employ research-based retention efforts on their campuses, such as formal mentoring programs involving faculty and staff.

Institutions must proactively counterbalance the historical inequities created by institutions of higher education in the past – inequalities that still create disparities for students of color, first generation students, or students with low socioeconomic backgrounds.

When matching faculty and staff mentors with underrepresented students, it’s essential that qualities such as shared cultures, similar backgrounds, and being of the same race are taken into account.

Join us for this unique training opportunity to equip yourself with how to better recruit, incorporate, and retain faculty and staff as mentors in their minority student mentoring programs.

Who Should Attend

Institutional leaders looking for ways to retain minority students, prioritize mentoring as a means of student success, and strengthen the mentoring culture on their campus will leave this webcast with ideas to inspire and inform their own efforts.
