Mentors aid in the successful transformation of 20 first-year at the University of San Francisco by serving as a role model and resource while encouraging engagement, satisfaction, and socially responsible leadership development among our Fellows.  

Mentors, with the collaboration and support the Program Directors, will meet the following expectations:

  • Serve as the primary cluster facilitator for a team of five (5) first-year Fellows
  • Attend all Magis events
  • Engage in two day-long trainings to prepare for each semester
  • Facilitate or Co-Facilitate at least 1 leadership development workshop for the Program 
  • Meet weekly as a Leadership Team, or as needed

Mentors are selected each spring semester to serve during the following academic year. Mentors are traditionally selected from our Alumni Society (those who have completed a fellowship with the program). 

The selection process begins with a nomination process from within the community, followed by a written application. Applications are reviewed by the current Leadership Team and interviews are offered to a select number of individuals. 

Program Directors extend offers to candidates based on overall performance within the recruitment process and cumulative program engagement.
