Why be a mentor? A beneficial mentoring relationship fosters engagement between a professional and student/graduate becoming better acquainted with his/her field of study or situation. Mentoring provides a venue whereby the mentee can learn, ask questions, and gain valuable insight.  Essential aspects to positive communications include: relay of knowledge, increased understanding, inspiration, and guidance.  Mentor-mentee relationships, however, also may include a necessity to uphold certain ethical behavior to build rapport and maintain respectful communication.  The goal of the Mentor-Mentee relationship is to foster a successful interaction. 

How does the Pitt-Greensburg Mentoring Network work? Mentors enroll on College Central Network (CCN).  Once approved, mentors can search for or be contacted by mentees through the network.  The Mentor-Mentee relationship, resulting from CCN for Pitt Greensburg, connects participants through an online process on CCN for Pitt Greensburg.

When matched with identified mentees based upon your search criteria, we encourage you to research your match prior to engaging in any mentoring to confirm the match will further your professional goals and objective.  By engaging in the mentor/mentee relationship, you agree to comply with the guidelines established by the offices of Career Services and Alumni Relations. 

If you are a Mentor who learns of a Mentee under the age of 18, please contact the appropriate office to discuss University policies and procedures (Mentors – Please contact Alumni Relations/Mentees – Please contact Career Services.)
