WiE Mentor Program

The Women in Engineering (WiE) Mentor Program provides opportunities for networking and social connection among women in the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering. Seniors, juniors and sophomores are matched with groups of first-year women students within their departments to participate in a variety of activities. Groups meet for coffee or meals, and other activities planned by the women in the program. 

This is a great opportunity to share your experiences at K-State, gain leadership skills and help guide new students through the challenges of their first year of college.

Apply to be a WiE mentor

Requirements for consideration to become a WiE mentor include the following:

  • Be in good standing academically and hold a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher;
  • Meet expectations to demonstrate professionalism during all encounters with mentees including appearance, demeanor and attitude;
  • Understand it is a volunteer-based program that expects no more than two to five hours of your time per week for the 2020-21 academic year (this may vary from week to week depending on relationships with mentees); and
  • Not be graduating in fall 2020, or participating in study abroad or a co-op in spring 2021.
