2022 & 2023 Queer Mentors and Leadership Program

Main Content

Join Queer Mentors!

QM is a mentorship program that offers connection, skills, and growth opportunities beyond compare.

Mentees must be enrolled full-time at SIU. You will get guidance and support from rigorously vetted mentors, who will be supervised by the QM training committee. You will be expected to engage and grow with an open mind and heart and contribute your own effort to making QM great. After your time as a mentee, you can choose to pursue a turn as a mentor and truly capitalize on everything QM—and SIU—has to offer.

Mentors must have completed 56 credit hours, 30 of which must have been consecutively on campus at SIU. You will become an invaluable resource to Queer and Ally students, faculty, and staff at SIU. You will get direct supervision from the QM training committee of faculty and staff, cultivating professional networks and furthering growth opportunities. The Mentee and Mentor applications are no longer being accepted this academic year. Keep us in mind for 2024/2025!!
