Are you interested in serving as a mentor for a current Liberal Arts undergraduate student? Mentors serve as coaches and guides to help students make the transition from student to professional. Your experience as a Liberal Arts alumna or alumnus can serve as a guide to current students. Whether sharing details about your own career progression or providing advice to current students, there are multiple options for connecting with students, including programs at the Department, College, and University levels.

Some Academic Departments also have resources to connect department alumni and current students. Examples include department LinkedIn groups, Facebook pages, and guest speakers series that provide students and alumni to connect. Some may also have specific department-based mentor programs. If you’re interested in connecting with students specifically from your academic major/department, then please contact the Career Enrichment Network regarding your specific interests, and we can refer you to the appropriate department contact person.
