Be a Mentor for NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP)

The Division of Student Life is looking for full-time staff members interested in serving as mentors for the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program (NUFP). Please see information below and consider being a NUFP mentor!

NUFP Program

The mission of the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program is to increase the number of historically disenfranchised and underrepresented professionals in student affairs and/or higher education, including but not limited to those of racial and ethnic-minority background; those having a disability; and those identifying in the LGBTQ+ community.

By mentoring students from traditionally underrepresented and historically disenfranchised populations, this semi-structured program diversifies and broadens the pipeline of our profession. Students and mentors apply as a pair. If accepted into the program, students are then known as Fellows and have opportunities for scholarships, on-campus mentorship, and professional development events.

Role of Mentor

Mentors serve a critical role in executing the goals and objectives of NUFP by engaging Fellows in mentoring and networking experiences, providing Fellows with knowledge, insight, and understanding of professional opportunities available in student affairs and higher education. Fellows and mentors should meet in a formal advising session at least once a month.

Do you want to be a Mentor?

Applying to be a mentor is a two-step process. If you are interested in being a NUFP mentor, begin by completing the mentor profile form below by Wednesday, August 28, 2019. Your profile information will be shared with students interested in applying to be a NUFP fellow.

Upon being selected by a student, you will need to complete a NUFP mentor application and NUFP agreement that the student will submit with their NUFP application materials.
