In 2015, the Southern Region of the GSA has revitalized its new member mentoring program with the goal of providing a longitudinal mentoring experience that ensures that every new SGSA member is welcomed, linked to GSA resources, and rapidly integrated into the SGSA community.  Pairings are made, when possible, based on specific area of expertise and career focus including admissions, student records, diversity, financial aid, student affairs, and student activities.  Mentor-Mentee pairs are made and communicated with in advance of the meeting, and a dedicated time will be designated during the conference to allow for members to meet and begin to establish a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship for advice, support, networking, and career development.

The program is available to any interested SGSA member.  An open-source sign up is available.
