The Mentorship Committee serves as an outreach committee of IACAC to provide new and veteran members with the opportunity to form professional partnerships, thus offering a comfort zone for problem solving and support in a profession that is constantly presented with new challenges.

In addition to matching mentors and mentees, the Mentorship committee hosts social events around the state, called #MentorshipMeetups, to provide an opportunity for networking amongst all admission and college counseling professionals.
