Advancing Women Mentoring Program

Meet your mentor

Your mentor will offer networking opportunities and advice to give you a boost in the professional world. They’ll also connect you with offices and other people on campus so that you can make the most of your time at IUPUI. It’s all about giving you what you need to be successful today and in the future.

Before signing up to be a mentee, consider the type of professional who might be a good partner for you. Don’t be afraid to look outside your typical area of study. Fresh, diverse perspectives can be enlightening and a great spark for change.

Advance lives as a mentor

We’re always looking for mentors to make a difference in the lives of IUPUI students. When you join us in our commitment to a lifetime of success, you’re signing up for an academic-year term, during which you’ll meet with your mentee on a regular basis. You can develop an authentic relationship with your student. Guide them and empower them to be great people.

As a mentor, you’ll receive regular trainings, including an orientation to get you started on the right foot, as well as workshops to improve your overall experience.

Register below to partner with the Office for Women and Student and Family Connections to make your mark.

Mentorship is for everyone

Since 2011, the Advancing Women Mentoring Program has been dedicated to the goals of providing authentic relationships, campus resources, and career and academic advice. Anyone with an interest in the subject of advancing women is welcome to participate in the program regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status. We are dedicated to making our program an enriching space for all of those who participate.

Recognize student leaders

Also in partnership with the Office for Women, we host the annual Women’s History Month Recognition Awards each spring as part of the National Women’s History Month observance on campus. We are committed to recognizing and celebrating students, faculty, and staff who have demonstrated significant leadership, achievement, advocacy, or service in support of gender equity, women’s empowerment, women’s history, or cultures of inclusion. Nominations for the awards are accepted in February. Nominees do not have to participate in the Advancing Women Mentoring Program. View more information about the awards.
