BECOME A FALCON MENTOR!
Mentoring Helps . . .
At-risk students who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor (The Mentoring Effect, 2014).
A 2014 Gallup-Purdue University study on the effects of mentoring found that support and experiences in college had more of a relationship to long-term outcomes for these college graduates. For example, if graduates recalled having a professor who cared about them as a person, made them excited about learning, and encouraged them to pursue their dreams, their odds of being engaged at work more than doubled, as did their odds of thriving in all aspects of their well-being.
"Through mentoring, a [faculty or staff member] extends his or her contribution to subsequent generations; the effects of one's work become multi-generational and, in some ways, immortal" (W. Brad Johnson, On Being a Mentor, 2016).
