Current Mentee

This page includes all the information you will need to participate as a Merge Mentee.

Before getting started, please be sure to review the Merge Mentee Guide.

At the start of the program, please complete the planning checklist with your mentor:
  • Share a bit about yourself.
  • How do we plan to meet? (In-person, Zoom, Phone)
  • How often do we plan to meet? (once per week, biweekly, once a month) *Remember, you are required to meet at least once a month for a minimum of one hour.
  • Will we meet at a set date and time each month (e.g. the 3rd Thursday of every month at 2 pm CST) or schedule at the end of each meeting?
  • If a call/email/text is received, we will respond within… (24 hours, 1-2 days, 3 days)
  • What is our preferred method of communication? (Phone call, text, email)
  • What are the mentee’s goals for this mentorship?
  • What are the mentor’s goals for this mentorship?
  • How can I help my mentor achieve these goals?
  • What existing questions do we have about the Merge Mentorship Program? (Contact Anna Claire Stinson at with any questions)

Remember, it is your responsibility to take initiative in contacting your mentor at the beginning and throughout the program.

Each month, you will meet for a minimum of one hour with your mentor to discuss career readiness topics of your choice. When setting up each meeting, be sure to tell your mentor what competency(s) you would like to discuss so both parties have time to prepare. There is no particular order you must follow, just aim to touch on all of the competencies by the end of the program.

Before each meeting, review the materials for the chosen competency(s) including the definition, reflection questions, questions to ask your mentor, suggested activities, and additional campus resources, found below:
