Welcome to Mentor Collective
Through Mentor Collective, students will have ongoing access to a network of current student mentors trained to offer guidance and advice.
What is Mentor Collective?
The Mentor Collective program enhances the student experience by linking them one-on-one with a CLA peer mentor. Students are paired with someone invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities. Students will learn what to expect in school, how to approach challenges and navigate their journey at Temple. At the same time, mentors will build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders.
How does Mentor Collective work?
Mentor Collective is a resource to help students navigate the many adjustments they often face when attending college, either for the first time or if they’re just looking for additional support throughout their time at CLA. Students are matched with a peer mentor based on common academic interests, life challenges and experiences. CLA Mentors are here to offer guidance as students acclimate to life in college and beyond. Students will connect via their preferred method of communication, in person, text, phone, email or virtual meeting platform.
