M&M Mentoring

M&M Overview

The M&M (Mentors & Mentees) Program is a peer-mentoring program for undergraduate female engineering students, where Freshmen are matched with Juniors, and Sophomores with Seniors within the same major.  M&M is a unique opportunity to build friendships with other students from across campus as well as for underclassman to find an upperclassman who can offer support and guidance so they’re not facing the challenges of succeeding at Tech alone. 

In addition to encouraging mentoring pairs to meet at times and venues of their choice, WIE plans monthly lunches with guest speakers to give M&M participants the chance to talk about various topics including resumes, goal-setting, leadership, study skills, time management and much more!

M&M Commitment

Being an M&M mentor or mentee is a fun and rewarding experience, but it does require a commitment of your time and energy in order for the partnership to be successful.  We ask that students signing-up to be a mentor or mentee make the commitment necessary to ensure a successful mentoring partnership, specifically committing to weekly communication and monthly meetings with their mentoring partner.  M&M members who make this commitment will benefit greatly from this program!

Sign-up to be an M&M Mentee or Mentor

The deadline to sign up to be a mentor or mentee has passed for this year. Please check back in August 2014 for more details on how to sign up for the M&M program.
