Mentoring at its core is the process of informally learning through others. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a person to personal growth as well as social and economic opportunity.  Did you know that having a mentor during college is linked to academic success and graduates’ well-being?
