Honors Beyond: The Mentorship Network

"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of being." — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Honors Beyond: The Mentorship Network seeks to strengthen the honors community by helping students connect within and beyond it, through collaboration with personal, academic, and professional mentors on- and off-campus.


Honors Beyond: The Mentorship Network will engage a vast network of collaborators, including motivated students and mentors, who help each other to develop personally and professionally and serve their communities.

We created Honors Beyond to develop a warm, caring Honors College community that is mission-focused and altruistic. Mentors supply nurturing and developmental support that provides Honors College students with opportunities that increase sense of community, program involvement, and ultimately program retention and persistence. All first-year students will work with a Peer Coach. Then, they will go beyond. We have engaged a wide network of mentors within the three categories below that include graduate students, alumni, and community members.

Honors students can access our networks below to find a potential mentor. People interested in becoming mentors can also find more information below.
