IC Mentoring Program

Have you ever given a bit of advice -- or needed it? It happens every day and the results can be great for both the seeker and the giver.

So why not focus that natural inclination on people just like you: folks who love the college and want to see its alumni, students, and friends succeed?

That's why the college has created the IC Mentoring Network and IC Mentor Connect. These two programs bring together members of our IC community to create meaningful connections with each other that reap rewards for both mentors and mentees.

Everyone has advice to offer about career decisions or life in general . . . and when you need advice and a bit of guidance, you come to this IC community. Explore this site, find out what we're about, and then sign up today to start what could be one of the most powerful relationships of your life.

Both the IC Mentoring Network and IC Mentor Connect are exclusively for members of the Ithaca College community (students, alumni, parents, and employees).

There are two ways mentees and mentors may connect with each other:
