MentorNet Opens its Doors to Students from All Campuses
Any qualified student with an '.edu' address can now seek a mentor
The U.S now ranks 27th in the world in the production of graduates in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while the global economy increasingly requires engineers and scientists to enter the workforce. To help address this critical need, MentorNet is announcing this week that its program is now open to all STEM students, especially woman and minorities, from any campus.
Please help us spread the word
If you know a woman or minority student who wishes to find a mentor in their chosen field, tell them to go to www.mentornet.net, and hit JOIN NOW or FIND A MENTOR. As long as they have an .edu address and intend to enter any STEM field, they will be eligible. We are launching a parallel campaign to recruit mentors to serve the influx of students we expect to serve, with out goal to continue to match 95% of all proteges.
Helping our campus partners
At the same time, we are growing our service to our campus partners, who will be a vital part of this effort. Getting students' attention about MentorNet is a struggle on many campuses. We're creating awareness-building tools - on Facebook, Twitter, with direct emails, videos, posters, and in the press - to help them build the program on their campuses. Of course, they will continue to have access to a reporting dashboard. To recognize official campus partners, their students will have priority matching (think of that special security line at the airport!). Our participating campuses will know what companies and agencies their students are connecting with and of course, be recognized by their students for sponsoring and promoting their interests.
If your campus is interested in joining this campaign, please email me directly to inquire: firstname.lastname@example.org
