Launched in 1997, MentorNet a division of GMiS, supports the academic persistence and advancement of underrepresented students in the STEM fields. MentorNet delivers a nationwide software-as-a-service platform for one-to-one mentoring that is open to all STEM students in higher education and to STEM professionals who want to serve as mentors.  Our goal is to ensure that all university and community college students interested in STEM have the opportunity and support necessary to persist in their education, to enter the U.S. workforce, and to contribute to scientific advancements and technological innovations.

The core strength of MentorNet’s service is the STEM focus of our mentee/mentor discussion topics delivered based on a college student’s developmental level – freshman through Ph.D. Topics are provided weekly along including short learning modules to help guide both the mentee and mentor through the mentorship. A key objective is to make the process of mentorship easy so the mentee and mentor can focus on student success.

MentorNet currently provides mentoring services for five NSF funded projects which are utilizing the platform to support their project’s mentoring, and previously received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring.  This video will illustrate the range of ways the MentorNet platform can be utilized to support mentoring within organizations and projects.
