OASFAA Mentoring Program

Mentors participating in this program are asked to make a two‐year commitment to supporting and developing our future leaders. The program is structured to include an Activity Year and a Planning Year.

During the Activity Year, Mentors will be identified. Mentors will connect with their assigned Mentees between February 2018 and February 2019. Mentors also will help their Mentees identify how they will serve as OASFAA volunteers during the following Planning Year.

During the Planning Year, the previous year’s efforts will be evaluated and the next year’s program designed. Mentors will actively participate in developing the program for the next Activity Year.

Mentor Expectations:

  • Experienced financial aid professionals willing to share their knowledge and advice with others
  • Individuals who will add to the mentoring program and the association’s leadership through diversity of experience and perspective
  • Current members of OASFAA with previous leadership experience
  • Available to mentor OASFAA colleagues between February 2018 and January 2019
  • Individuals may nominate themselves, but must provide evidence that the employer will allow time for participation, including monthly meetings (via teleconferencing, etc.) and attendance at the OASFAA Summer Drive‐In and Annual Conference.

 Mentor applications are due January 15, 2018. Email completed applications to chair Mary McGlothlan at mmcglothlan@cu-portland.edu
