MLIS Peer-to-Peer Mentorship Program Overview
The transition to graduate school can take time and may bring unexpected changes and new problems to navigate in your life. St Catherine University has a wealth of services available to students. An MLIS peer mentor serves as a resource—a helping hand, a sounding board, a referral service— to provide both personal and professional support for students in the early stages of the MLIS program.
- Connect new students and advanced students in the program
- Make the transition to grad school easier
- Give new students a resource for navigating St. Kate’s, the MLIS program, and the Twin Cities library community
- Mentor: Completed at least 12 credits in the program
- Mentees: First semester, or completed less than 12 credits
This is a mentee-driven relationship. It is the mentee’s responsibility to schedule meetings or conversations, and to direct questions and concerns to the mentor.
- Check-ins once a month, minimum. This can be in person or virtual.
- Maximum time commitment: 1 hour/week
- Duration: One semester, but may be renewed.
