LGBTQ+ Mentoring Project
Are you interested in serving as a ‘mentor’ to an incoming lgbtq+ first year student applying for admission to IU?
High school students who identify on the queer spectrum and who are looking at colleges often have questions about life on campus, especially as it relates to issues of sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
The LGBTQ+ Center is seeking current students who are interested in answering those questions once students have been accepted to IU and, possibly, following up as a friend during a student’s first year on campus.
Application instructions follow this announcement and you may apply at any time. If your application is accepted, you will be offered an interview before the end of the semester.
Training will take place during the first week of classes in the fall at which time you will be assigned to a mentee.
- We hope to accept mentors from across the queer spectrum. Allies are also welcome to apply as well.
- Mentors are expected to be mature and responsible individuals who are capable of offering advice and providing guidance to their assigned mentee.
- We are seeking candidates who exemplify strong interpersonal, communication, and leadership skills.
Deadline for this first selection process is April 15.
