Connecting Women Across and Beyond Campus for Support, Leadership, and Excellence


The Women’s Center Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for junior and senior female students at Ohio University to connect with a female mentor in their personal and professional fields of interest. The goal of the program is to enrich the female undergraduate experience at Ohio University and to pair students with a mentor who can offer guidance and assist them in reaching their personal and professional goals.

In addition to building a mentoring relationship, participating students and mentors will have the opportunity to attend programs and activities focused on career and personal development. Mentors and mentees will decide on the format of their mentoring relationship and the time commitment they wish to make. It is recommended that you meet at least once a month and stay in contact regularly.

The program is designed for junior and senior women students with both clearly defined or unsure career goals.

OU alumnae, current and retired female faculty and staff, female graduate students, and Athens area professionals and activists are eligible to serve as mentors.

The Women’s Center Mentoring Program runs formally from November through the end of Spring Quarter. Participants may decide to keep in contact informally after the program has ended if they wish to do so.
