The Mentoring Resources Committee was initially constituted as a task force in 2006. The task force served an important role in the University by helping to identify and support mentoring opportunities that distinguish Wilkes as an exceptional learning community. The Mentoring Resources Committee is charged with reviewing applications for mentoring funds and awarding funds for student travel grants and university wide project fund grants.
The Mentoring Resources Committee is guided by the following purpose statement:
Wilkes University embraces a culture that is committed to developing mentoring relationships. These connections and networks will be manifested in a variety of ways, giving students not only the opportunity to be mentored, but to mentor others. Developing and sustaining relationships that provide personal and professional guidance will be the hallmark of a Wilkes education.
