Thank you for your interest in becoming an Aztec Mentor Program mentor. Before you are paired with an SDSU student mentee, we ask every mentor to acknowledge the commitment necessary to ensure a successful mentoring partnership. Participation in the Aztec Mentor Program is highly enjoyable, rewarding and beneficial for both alumni and students, which requires mutual respect and commitment from the participants. 

Please know, the university is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy living and learning environment for students, faculty and staff. Each member of the campus community should choose behaviors that contribute toward this end. Students are expected to be good citizens and to engage in responsible behaviors that reflect well upon their university, to be civil to one another and to others in the campus community, and contribute positively to student and university life. (41301, Title 5, California Code of Regulations) 

IMPORTANT: As a registered mentor, I acknowledge and understand the following:

I pledge to commit my time and expertise to assist my mentee in developing and achieving his or her goals. 

I commit to building a mutual relationship with my mentee, to hearing about dreams and challenges, to sharing my own stories, and to respecting the differences between us. 

I understand that students request mentors based on educational backgrounds, professional interests, and other factors, but a “perfect” pairing is not always possible. 

I understand the quality of any mentoring experience is largely determined by the commitment, time and quality of communication between me and my mentee. 

I understand that my mentee is responsible for transportation to and from any meeting. 

I understand and support that alcohol should not be part of AMP. I further agree to abide by these guidelines as they relate to any mind-altering substances. 

I am aware of SDSU's policy relating to nondiscrimination and unlawful harassment and I agree to abide by university policy with regard to my interaction with my mentee.

If I become aware of an incident that may violate university policy, I will immediately inform Dr. James Tarbox, Executive Director of Career Services, or Diane Marin, AMP Coordinator, at amp@sdsu.edu.

I understand that my involvement in the Aztec Mentor Program is at the discretion of SDSU Career Services and Career Services reserves the right to withdraw me from the program if I do not meet program expectations. 

If at any point I am no longer able or no longer want to participate in the program, I promise to notify my mentee and Career Services (amp@sdsu.edu) about my situation as soon as possible so a new mentor can be matched for the mentee.

I understand that the program runs during the Fall and Spring semesters and that there is no required commitment after the program ends. However, if both parties choose to continue a professional relationship SDSU Career Services is not liable for this interaction. 

I give SDSU Career Services permission to share my name, e-mail address and phone number with my mentee.

I acknowledge all of the above statements and by registering for this program I commit to mentoring a current SDSU student in the Aztec Mentor Program. This Code of Conduct will remain in effect until I request to opt out via email to amp@sdsu.edu
