Abstract
  • In order to support first-year women in engineering, a program was designed to help their transition to college and promote connection with other women. The program focused on three main areas based in research: mentor matching with mentee input, regular formal meetings in small mentoring groups, and the formation of an informal mentoring community. Based on a mentor speed-dating event, 120 mentees were put into groups with 17 mentors based on their input, as well as, demographic/psychographic questions. Regular mentor group and SWEsters organized events spanned Fall Term 2017. Following the program, mentees were survey via an online survey to determine the success of specific program components. All survey participants agreed that the program should be continued in the future. Specific results and suggestions for further improvements are presented in this thesis.
