Mentorship Program


NALSAP is dedicated to providing support and guidance to new student affairs professionals. The NALSAP Mentor Program, developed at the inaugural NALSAP conference, gives new professionals a unique opportunity to learn from experienced student affairs professionals. Mentors and mentees are matched according to experience, regions, law school characteristics, and/or mentorship program goals.


How to Participate

NALSAP’s Mentorship Committee will be accepting applications from mentees and mentors for the 2020-2021 academic year. Mentor and Mentee applications will be posted March 1, 2020. Please continue to check back for details.


Program Expectations

Mentors will contact mentees before the 2020 NALSAP Conference (June 17-19) and arrange a time to connect (either in person or virtually). Mentors will check in with mentees quarterly during the 2020-2021 academic year. Communication can be via email, telephone, or in-person.

Together, mentors and mentees will develop goals for their relationship. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to develop collaborative relationships by working on programs, committees, projects, and/or presentations together.

Mentor Program participants are expected to keep all communications between mentors and mentees confidential.
