LUC & Me
Loyola University Chicago Mentoring Experience
"As a mentor I appreciated the reciprocal relationship I had with my mentee. We understood that we had knowledge to share and learn from each other."
-Sangita Gosalia, LUC & ME Mentor
The Loyola University Chicago Mentoring Experience, LUC & Me, is a voluntary, formal mentoring program for newly hired staff members.
The program matches newly hired employees, mentees, with experienced employees who will act as mentors. Each mentor will share his/her knowledge and experience in a one-on-one partnership with a mentee.
LUC & Me supports the University's initiative for employee diversity, retention and engagement.
LUC & Me is currently accepting new mentors and mentees for 2013, the program will run from August through February 2014. If you are interested in participating in LUC & Me, please contact the Program Coordinator, Tori New at 773-508-3964 or fill out the online form by clicking on the link above!
A mentee is a full-time staff member who has been employed with Loyola for less than six months and would benefit from the support of an experienced staff member.
A mentor is a full-time staff member in good standing, who typically has two years or more of work experience at Loyola. A mentor should have a good working knowledge of University policies and procedures and be dedicated to supporting and encouraging new staff, building the University community, and fostering Loyola's mission.
