Thank You for Your Interest

AvenueE is a program designed to increase participation of women and underrepresented minorities in engineering and computer science, serving high potential, low resource students, and those from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree.  

To better serve these students, we welcome faculty and industry professionals who are in the engineering and computer science fields to sign up to become a mentor.  Based on your interests and availability, program staff will pair mentors up with an AvenueE student. 

Mentor Expectations: 

  • Mentoring assignments are for 1 academic year (September – June).
  • Mentors should plan to meet with mentees in October via Zoom or video conferencing for your first session.
    • Subsequent sessions can be held via phone, video conference, or one-on-one as able.
  • Mentors should plan to spend about 10-20 clock hours working with their mentee(s) over the course of the academic year.
  • We recommend touching base at least once a month throughout the academic year to engage your student mentee.
