CONNECT WITH A MENTOR/STUDENT
To establish a relationship with a mentor
or student, click on "Connect with a Mentor/Student" after you have
logged in. This will take to a page featuring a list of all unmatched
mentors or students. Click on a person's name to review their
profile (a pop-up window will open). Once you have decided who
you would like to be matched to, select your match by clicking on the
radio button next to their name. Scroll down to the bottom of
the page, enter your message to you match in the space provided, and
click "Send Invite Email." Your potential match will be receiving
an email requesting their acceptance of the match. Should they
agree, you will then receive an email notifying you of their acceptance.
Your match will also be indicated on your personal home page after logging
in. Should they reject your request, you will then receive an
email notifying you of their rejection. If this is this case,
we encourage you to try another match, as there are still many eager
mentors and students waiting to be matched.
If you are the recipient of a request for a match, you may either accept or reject it by logging in and reviewing their request on your personal home page. Options for either action will be listed next to the requesting person's information.
Discontinue a relationship first by notifying your match of your desire to break the match, explaining to them the reason for your actions so that they are not surprised to learn that your relationship has ended after logging into their account. Once you have personally expressed your need to end the match, log into your account and review your current matches on your personal home page. Click "Terminate Match," which is located next to you match's information, to officially end your relationship. You and your ex-match will then shortly receive an email informing each of you of the termination of your match.
These are merely a few of the many directions your relationship can take you. Remember, the nature of the relationship is determined by the student and the mentor. We realize that both students and mentors have busy schedules and simply ask that you do your best to make this relationship meaningful. If both parties can only find time to communicate through email, exchange messages as frequently as possible. Whether or not meetings are possible, it should go without saying that communication is key!
