SLP-KC Graduate Student Mentoring Program – NASPA Annual Conference
The NASPA Student Leadership Programs Knowledge Community (SLPKC) Graduate
Student Mentor Program is designed to connect graduate students who are interested in student leadership with current professionals in the field. Each graduate student (mentee) will be matched with a professional (mentor) during the national conference and will be encouraged to network during the course of the conference. There is an expectation that the mentor and mentee attend SLPKC and Conference social events together. It will be up to the discretion of both the mentor and mentee if they wish to continue to communicate after the conference. The purpose of the program is to connect the mentee to the SLPKC and NASPA, provide the mentee with networking opportunities during the conference, and allow the mentee to learn more about working with student leadership programs.
- Currently working in an area of student leadership at an institution of higher education
- Minimum of 2 years professional experience
- Commitment to attend conference events with mentee
- Currently enrolled in a graduate program
- Commitment to attend conference events with mentor
