Dare to Be Mentees
What is involved?
Students interested in becoming a mentee, will undertake training and will participate in a group mentoring activity
before being matched with a suitable mentor. The mentor will be a member of DMU staff, DMU alumni, or a DMU Honorand
(recipient of an honorary doctorate or degree).
Students (‘mentees’) and their mentors will negotiate a suitable pattern of engagement and will work with each other
through the course of the academic year.
Who can participate?
Any DMU student can apply to participate in Dare to Be mentoring.
What are the benefits?
For students, the aim of the mentoring is to achieve a stable and secure foundation for university life. From this foundation,
the confidence gained will foster independent growth and a connection with others, which in turn will allow you to take the steps towards achieving your lifelong aspirations.
How do I take part?
As part of the application process, we ask you to think about what you would like to talk to a mentor about. This could include developing existing skills and experience, changing your approach to study or work, exploring new ideas, addressing areas
you feel you are struggling in.
We would also like you to consider the type of person who would be the best mentor for you. Think about their experience,
knowledge and abilities.
This will help us understand how you want to grow and progress, and enable us to best match you to a mentor.
Applications for the scheme will reopen at the start of the 2019/20 academic year.
