What is mentorship?
Princeton’s Steering Committee on Undergraduate Women’s Leadership defines mentorship as “good advice, close connections with peers and others who understand life at Princeton, and relationships with people at different stages of life whom one knows and can trust.” At Princeton, mentorship draws from a network of students, faculty, administrators, and alumni.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Princeton Women’s Mentorship Program is to empower women students to take on leadership roles and realize their full potential at Princeton and beyond. By facilitating mentoring relationships, providing opportunities for reflection and self-examination, and teaching practical leadership skills, the program helps women students strengthen their self-confidence, find their voice, learn to wield influence and exercise authority, and articulate and pursue leadership goals.
