About: Findings were presented on mentoring and student outcomes when mentors and mentees were matched based on different characteristics. Matching based on underrepresented minority status, first-generation status, and international student status predicted higher student GPA, however results varied across other demographic variables. Matching may be a valuable practice generally for promoting GPA.
