Mentoring Program

The EACUBO Board of Directors is seeking mentors and mentees to participate in the ninth cohort of the EACUBO Mentoring Program, a yearlong, formal mentoring program that will begin on October 22, in conjunction with the EACUBO 2023 Annual Meeting in Montreal.

This engaging program will match experienced senior business and financial officers with individuals who aspire to advance their career toward top financial roles at higher education institutions. The program capitalizes on the skills and knowledge of EACUBO’s experienced leaders and their willingness to invest in building the strength and quality of the higher education business and finance administration profession. The program will also help institutions expand the pool of future business officers from diverse backgrounds and equip rising stars to serve and lead more diverse organizations.

How the Mentoring Program Works

  • Complete the mentee participation application, submit it along with your resume/curriculum vitae, and a letter of recommendation by July 21, 2023.
  • Submitted applications are reviewed, selections are made and invitations are sent to new mentees. Mentors are recruited and matched based on the positions, institution-types, locations and needs of the cohort of mentees.
  • As a mentee you will be involved both in one-on-one sessions with your mentor, as well as three formal sessions with all mentors and mentees in the cohort at the next three EACUBO events in October, March and October 2024.
  • The group sessions will include presentations on various topics, group discussion, and informal networking.
  • In-person attendance at all three meetings is expected, and in-person participation in the first session is required.
  • In addition to these three cohort meetings, each mentor/mentee pair will develop their own schedule of meetings, usually monthly, throughout the year. These meetings may be in person or via Zoom.
  • Coordinators are available to assist anytime.

We are also seeking great mentors! If you are a senior business officer who would like to share your knowledge and expertise or know of someone who would be a great mentor, please let us know at [email protected].
