Mentors Matter: The Biggest Blown Opportunity in Higher Ed History

January 18, 2016

A recent online Gallup article lists a lack of mentoring as the “biggest blown opportunity in higher ed history.” Citing results from the largest representative study of U.S. college graduates, Gallup determined that where students go to college matters less to their work life and well-being after graduation than how they went to college. Feeling supported and having deep learning experiences during college mean everything when it comes to long-term outcomes after college. A key way that college students receive that support – mentoring – is, unfortunately, often lacking at institutions of higher education and thus, a “blown opportunity."

But Cedarville University is different. We take mentoring our students seriously and are intentional about incorporating it throughout campus. 

Read today's post to learn ways that Cedarville provides intentional mentoring opportunities for students.
