Our mentorship program strives to encourage and aid students who are pursuing studies or future employment in computing by connecting them with more experienced upperclassmen and alumni mentors. The role of the mentor is to cultivate and enhance their mentees' interest in computer science while supporting diversity and the empowerment of women in computing fields.

Mentors and mentees will be matched primarily based on academic interests. Mentees can also request mentors, and we will do our best to honor these requests.



Become a Mentor

As a mentor you are expected to hold conversations with your mentees monthly, help your mentees establish meaningful connections, give advice on course selection, or otherwise. Any motivated undergraduates, graduate students, and grads majoring in or working CS or related technical fields can sign-up as a mentor.

Undergraduate Mentors

  • Undergraduates must be sophomores, juniors, or seniors at Cornell.
  • Four meetings with your mentees: meetings could be in person for lunch, coffee, etc. and should be at least 30 minutes long.
  • Pre-Enroll Dinner: share advice about what classes to take, open to anyone in computing majors!
  • One general meeting, which could include: outings with other mentor groups, WICC social events with both the mentors and mentees attending, or additional group meetings.
