Director  |  Terre Haute, IN

“I believe that relationships are cornerstones in the foundation of our personal and professional lives. Mentoring relationships are especially important because they provide opportunities for learning and growth outside the classroom and provide unique perspectives, professional connections, and a wide variety of resources which may not be available otherwise.”

EilbrachtMallory Eilbracht (she/her/hers)

Mentoring Center Program Coordinator  |  Terre Haute, IN

“Mentoring relationships meet people where they are at and provide not only support, but guidance through whatever it is they are experiencing in the moment. It provides a caring connection with someone who wants to see you succeed in the goals you are setting for yourself which can last one semester or even a lifetime."
