Mentor Collective at the most diverse four year public institution in the nation

5 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Our overall experiences with Mentor Collective have been phenomenal! Our mentors are gaining real-world experience in providing support to their peers and mentees are benefiting through the relationship building and connection they make with their mentors. When we first started out with this program, it was with the sole purpose of increasing our first-year retention rate. We have come to realize that not only are we able to see an increase in retention for our program participants, but we're also seeing benefits for both mentors and mentees in ways that we hadn't even thought about at the beginning of the program.

Pros:

We are in our fifth year of using Mentor Collective and each year, not only do we get more students matched with mentors, but the quality of the mentoring has improved as well. This is evidenced through an increase in both overall GPA and retention of students (as a cohort) who are matched with a mentor compared to those who chose not to participate in the program. Mentor Collective provided the matching of our first-year students with mentors that they helped us train. Mentor Collective also provides on-going support for their online platform. This is especially helpful for administrators who are tasked with providing timely response to flags raised by mentors.

Cons:

We are the most diverse four year public institution in the nation making it difficult to build any type of program in a one size fits all format. The diversity on our campus requires that our mentors be trained on cultural competency and being able to effectively communicate with peers from many different backgrounds, cultures, geographies, etc. The basic training that Mentor Collective provides does not really factor in some of the reality of what institutions of higher education is dealing with in terms of relating to students through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Helped get our mentorship program off the ground

3 last week New

Pros:

We're a national organization with reach across the United States and the Pacific Islands, we needed a virtual platform that made it easy for mentors and mentees to sign up to be mentors and facilitate their pairings, Mentor Collective offers that.

Cons:

Over the two years of the program, there has been drop off in survey completions and contact tracked. While the software helps with the first step of facilitation, there is more to be desired when it comes to the ongoing strength of that mentorship pair.

Tracking Professional and Peer Mentorship Programs with Ease

5 2 weeks ago New

Pros:

Since implementing Mentor Collective, our team's capacity has expanded, we've seen higher quality matches, and we can better track progress and barriers to student success. The insight flag and conversation log functions allows us to better understand the issues our students are facing and how to best support them. The onboarding and tracking pieces help our team to understand progress and where additional outreach is required. The mentor and mentee profiles give us a clearer understanding of who the students and professionals are who are participating in the program and share the story of impact externally.

Cons:

When pulling mentor and mentee reports, we need to export the data and then filter the spreadsheet by date matched in order to see current active participants (as opposed to participants who registered and completed the matching survey). Being able to click on an generate a report of currently matched students and not the full list of those who registered but didn't go the additional steps would be helpful.

Large-scale mentorship program success

5 last week New

Comments: We have had great support from the Mentor Collective Team. The software is easy to use and efficient.

Pros:

The customized matching and training survey allowed us to implement a large-scale mentoring program quickly and efficiently.

Cons:

It would be nice to have some more detailed data (URM, transfer status of mentees) at our fingertips in the dashboard.
