Guidance Beyond the Classroom

Every year, the Mentorship Collective creates meaningful relationships between first-year and upper-class students. Connect with an upper-class student mentor who will be there for you as you start your college career  to help you navigate challenges and be there for you.

You will be paired with someone invested in your success — someone ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities. Through the Mentorship Collective Program, students will learn what to expect at Assumption, how to approach challenges, and gain career advice and valuable insights.

How Does It Work?

New students will register and complete a comprehensive online survey to be matched with a peer mentor with shared interests, background, academics, and professional aspirations. Learn more about the program by contacting Chad Laliberte, Director of Student Success Pathways at or 508-767-7310.
