The mission of the Professional C.A.T.S. (Culver-Stockton Alumni Transitioning Students) Mentoring Program is to pair students and recent graduates with business professionals who will contribute to their career success through personal relationships.
What is a Mentorship?
The mentor/mentee relationship is a unique and personal relationship, which transcends a mere advisor or board relationship. It is one of the most rewarding things people can be involved in outside of their family relationships. Mentorship doesn't happen by accident. Both the mentor and the mentee have their parts to play in a successful mentor/mentee relationship.
A “mentor” is a person who has had professional and life experience that can be used to help others learn and develop. The mentor is willing to share these experiences in a manner that the mentee can react to and understand. Mentors for our program can be Culver-Stockton College graduates that have been out of school for 5 years and within their professional field for one year. In order to be a mentor to a current student or recent graduate of Culver-Stockton College, it involves a yearlong commitment offering professional advice within your field or business/industry by communicating either through face-to-face meetings or phone calls/e-mails.
A “mentee” is a person who receives the help and assistance of the mentor. The mentee is willing to be engaged and respectful of the mentor’s time and accomplishments. Mentee’s for the program can be Culver-Stockton College graduates who have graduated in the past 5 years or are currently enrolled as college Junior’s or Senior’s. In order to be a mentee and placed with an alumnus of Culver-Stockton College, it involves a yearlong commitment where you will receive professional advice within your field or business/industry through communicating either through face-to-face meetings or phone calls/e-mails with a mentor.
