Apply by October 25th for our open Positions: House Mentor
& First Year Experience House Mentor positions

House Mentor Position

Summary: Student success and satisfaction with distance education is largely based on the amount and quality of the connection between the student, their peers, the school, and the faculty. To better meet this need, MCU has developed a system of houses. A “House” is a community consisting of smaller groups of students that, as a cohort, can support each other and receive holistic support from a primary mentor known
as a House Mentor.

House Mentors support MCU’s mission through providing “continuity of care” for the students’ educational experience at MCU. A House Mentor will manage many aspects of the student’s clinical program and provide group activities and individual coaching to support student progress. They are a resource for policy and procedure questions.

The Ideal Candidate: An ideal House Mentor candidate has experience in direct-entry midwifery education and an understanding of the midwifery profession, in general. They have experience using coaching models to support student self actualization and success, and have actively coached individuals. The ideal candidate would have a working knowledge of MCU’s foundational cultural frameworks of Outward Mindset, Crucial Conversations, Mission, Vision, and Social Justice. They have tools to support their own resilience, compassion, and patience with balance, boundaries, and flexibility. They are a safe resource for diverse students and can provide culturally appropriate mentoring.
