Mentors

Sign-up Process for Alumni

Benefits

  • Connect with the university and current students 
  • Learn how to be a sounding board for mentees while sharing your knowledge and experience
  • Flexibility – we know you have a busy schedule, so the program is designed to give you control over the number of contacts from students per month. It is up to each pair how and what type of mentoring will take place.

  • Respond to communications from your mentee in a timely manner.
