LGBTQ Mentor Application

Thank you for your interest as serving as a mentor! As a mentor, you will have the opportunity to provide support and guidance to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning students based on your own experiences. You will be expected to:

  • Be out.
  • Meet with your mentee in person at least once per month.
  • Commit to the mentoring relationship and program for at least one year.
  • Respect the degree of outness desired by your mentee.
  • Respect confidentiality.
  • Serve as a resource to your mentee.
  • Contact the Office of LGBTQ Student life if you have any concerns.
  • Attend mentor training.
  • Provide feedback to the Office of LGBTQ Student Life if any concerns develop.
  • Have fun!

Please note: We have a significantly larger pool of mentors than mentees. This allows us to better match students and mentors. We cannot guarantee that each mentor applicant will be matched to a student. If we feel you would be a good match, we will contact you. All applicants will, however, be invited and encouraged to participate in any mentoring program events.
