Build Scalable and Impact Driven Mentorship Programs 

EnPoint’s easy-to-use mentorship software for students and alumni in Post Secondary Institutions will help you create a customizable, high impact, goal driven and measurable program for both your students and alumni.

Why Mentoring is Crucial For Students

While some students are only beginning their post secondary journey and other students move from school into the workplace, mentorship can be a great tool to support these often jarring and key transitional periods in their life. 

 

A study done in the University of California evaluated whether peer mentoring might increase students’ feelings of engagement, which can contribute to the university’s overall student retention. Results indicated mentored students felt significantly more integrated and connected to their university at the end of their first semester in comparison to non-mentored students. Mentored students expressed that they felt more integrated and supported at college, which might reinforce their persistence toward graduating.

A study found that 84% of students change their career paths before they turn 25. Additionally, a LinkedIn study found that millennials will change jobs an average of four times in their first decade out of post-secondary education. 

For Post Secondary Institutions: 

Mentorship programs can help foster a collaborative and communal student life on campus. Programs such as peer mentorship can support the retention of student enrollment. It can facilitate easier transitions and offer deeper support for your diverse campus population such as newly enrolled students, transfer students, international students, and more. Having a mentor can provide a student with emotional support, increasing feelings of connectedness on campus, and promote integration within the campus life. 

For Students: 

Having a mentor is an effective way for students to gain clarity on their career goals and create actionable plans to achieve those goals both during and following their academic career. It is also a tool to increase self-awareness, illuminating strengths and areas for development, as well as increasing self-confidence, which supports professional and personal growth. A mentor offers unique, enlightening insights and learnings to on-campus life and to post-academic career.

Alumni Mentoring Spotlight: Dalhousie Schulich School of Law

 

The Dalhousie Schulich School of Law, a professional school that prepares its students for the workplace with a yearlong articling requirement, has integrated additional mentoring for their third and fourth year students. The Director, Career Services and Employer Relations shares, “this has allowed us to engage our alumni community in a meaningful, easy way while also supporting our students in advancing in their academic and professional careers.” Not only do their alumnae have an opportunity to give back to the institution, but the students are better prepared to find meaningful work in a discipline of their choice.

Career Mentoring Spotlight: The Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ program

The Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ program was a Pan-Atlantic Canada project administered by EduNova that supports international students in starting careers in their province of choice in Atlantic Canada. The program connects students directly to mentors as a way to help address employment barriers associated with starting careers in a new country, and provide 'applied' knowledge and experiential learning opportunities. Additionally, the program allows provinces to retain international  graduates resulting in a win/win/win for students, employers, and Atlantic Canada. In 2018 alone, the program facilitated 200 international students gaining the essential skills, resources, and connections needed to transition from 'student' to 'professional' in a new country.
