The benefits of mentoring

“I think the best mentor relationships are actually mentor-mentor relationships, where both parties show up to learn” – Simon Sinek

Mentoring is widely accepted as a positive influence on the undergraduate student experience – leading to improved academic performance and persistence.

Mentoring also positively influences a student's sense of belonging, capacity for socially responsible leadership, deep and strategic learning approaches, and self-confidence in professional skills and abilities (Lunsford, Crisp, Dolan and Wuetherick, 2009).

As a Charles Sturt Mentor, you will:

  • provide support and guidance to peers in need
  • cultivate an environment of learning, discovery and professional

  • benefit from personalised training and professional development.
