LEAD | SUCCEED
The Science and Engineering mentorship program provides a vehicle for students to lead and succeed.
The peer mentorship program in the College of Science and Engineering at Winona State University pairs sophomores, juniors, and seniors with first-year students.
Through the program, experienced students support new students toward their academic and extracurricular goals to increase their sense of belonging, and help them to succeed.
Mentors will advise students, engage in discussions, serve as a resource and help mentees navigate the competing demands of college life.
How It Works
We have partnered with Mentor Collective, an online mentoring community. Students will be matched with a peer mentor based upon common interests, background, academics, and professional aspirations.
To get started, students and mentors register and complete an online survey to assess personality and experience. Mentor Collective offers training, online support, and guidance to develop mentoring skills.

- How will a major impact your professional options
