Strong Relationships

Emotional connection is a crucial element for mentoring pairs in achieving program objectives. Pairs with a strong bond engage more effectively with the curriculum and tend to show more growth in nurturing a college aspiration and in the development of non-cognitive skills.

Our Philosophy

iMentor prioritizes learning and innovation through data collection and analysis at every step in our model.

  • Honesty

    A strong data foundation allows us to learn as much as possible, with the confidence that our results are statistically rock-solid. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of accuracy, analysis, and reporting.

  • Rigor

    We take a comprehensive approach to data collection, gathering from the widest range of sources available. Doing so allows us to describe results in the most robust way possible.

  • Utility

    Our investment in an in-house research and evaluation team isn’t just for show. Their diligent and timely data collection, analysis and accessible reporting provide colleagues at every level of the organization the information needed to run a high-quality program and continuously improve the experience of the individuals and institutions with which we partner.

  • Transparency

    We see transparency as the key to opening up collaboration and learning among peer organizations—and ultimately, increased efficacy within the college success field. We strive to be as clear as possible when discussing the approaches we use to measure outcomes, allowing our partners and peers to gain keen insights into the similarities and differences between our approach and those of other organizations.
