The Professional Mentor Program program offers an innovative approach to mentoring by providing students with a practical application of networking skills, personal and professional growth, insight into the realities of their chosen career field and a “best professional friend.” For mentors, it offers an opportunity reconnect with Xavier, influence the growth of a student, and build your own skills as a leader. Once matched, the pair remains connected until the student graduates from Xavier. The Professional Mentor Program has been around for over 15 years and has served almost 4,000 students in that time.

We welcome students and mentors across all majors and industries. Mentee applications are accepted twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. If you have questions prior to joining, please email

Eligible mentors must have at least 3 years of professional experience, post-graduation. If you do not yet meet that requirement, consider joining Flash Mentoring.

As Xavier students explore their professional goals outside of Xavier, we encourage them to seek the advice of professionals working in the fields they are considering. Through Flash Mentoring, professionals can make themselves available for one-time, individual conversations. These conversations will allow students to build knowledge of their desired field, job function, organization, or graduate program so they can become better prepared to represent Xavier in the workforce. There is no long term commitment and you can adjust your availability at any time.

Any professional is welcome to join Flash Mentoring. Click "join now" to complete your profile and make yourself available to students. If you have at least 3 years of professional experience (post-degree), you can also join the Professional Mentor Program.

Students can select "Login" at the top of this screen to get started.
