Mentor Resources: Flow of Program

  • Mentees enter the program as they are identified by the referring office.
  • Mentee is then referred to the Health Promotion Department at the University Health Center.
  • Mentee meets with Program Coordinator for an Initial Interview for the purpose of matching the mentee to a mentor.
  • Program Coordinator emails mentor to inform mentor of match and provide a brief summary of menteeā€™s academic situation and interests. (Mentors are not told how mentee violated UGA policy.)
  • Mentee emails mentor to initiate the first meeting.
  • Mentees and mentors meet at least 8 times for about one hour.
  • Mentees and mentors mutually determine the frequency and location of meetings.
  • Mentees must complete two assignments designed to help them develop a sense of purpose and must keep a Mentor Meeting Log.
  • Other than helping mentees with the two assignments, mentors are free to work with the mentee as they see appropriate.
  • About every two weeks, the Program Coordinator will check in by email with all mentees or mentors. A brief response is expected of the mentees and appreciated from the mentors.
  • After meeting 8 times, mentee asks mentor to sign Mentor Meeting Log.
  • Mentee meets with Program Coordinator for an exit Interview for purpose of helping mentee synthesize his/her experience.
  • Mentees and mentors are free to end the relationship after the mentee has completed the program.
