The HELLO Community is investigating the possibility of implementing a Mentor/Mentee matching program.  Our belief is that many administrators in higher education would like to participate in a mentoring relationship but lack the tools to establish one, especially if an extramural relationship is preferred.

This service would enable members to register their interest in becoming a mentor and mentee – someone could potential participate as both.  Registrant information would be used to select and present the user with potentially matching candidates (see table below for potential matching criteria) who would then investigate each candidates’ background information (see potential list below) and flag candidates in whom they are interested.  Mentors and mentees who flag each other might then be presented with contact information so they can begin the relationship.

Please use the discussion forum (you will need to join the HELLO Community Development Group) and its associated poll to let us know;

  • If this would be a useful service for you.
  • Your recommendations on how we might improve the matching and selection process as outlined below
  • Any other comments or suggestions you might have.
