More than a membership...we offer a partnership
NAGAP’s Mentoring Program is a great way to connect with new colleagues and share knowledge. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with my mentee and I look forward to continuing our relationship and working together to find workable and creative solutions within our profession when issues arise.”
-Kristin Chalberg, Associate Director of Graduate Admission, St. Catherine University, NAGAP Mentoring Program Mentor
NAGAP Mentor Program
All members with fewer than five years of experience in graduate enrollment management will be offered the opportunity to be paired with an experienced NAGAP member as a mentor.
Throughout the year-long relationship, mentors will share what works well (successes), what could be better (barriers/hurdles) and how strategies and goals can improve (solutions) based on their own successful and unsuccessful strategies. Through this process, the mentee should gain a deeper understanding of the profession by hearing from a mentor on how to overcome challenges as well as evolve in the profession.
To pair mentors with those seeking mentoring, the NAGAP MentorCommittee will match the participants based on a set of questions designed to elicit their goals for taking part. Communicating by email and telephone, the participants will be in contact on a mutually agreed-upon schedule, touching base on a regular basis.
If you are interested in taking part in the Mentoring program as a mentor or mentee, please contact mentor at nagap.org.
