Mentoring group session

What is the Mentor Program?

A collaboration between the Diederich College of Communication and the College of Communication Alumni Association, the Mentor Program seeks to help students gain valuable insight into career choices, get helpful tips on their career search process and practice networking skills.

The program enables alumni to be more engaged with the college and to assist future alumni.

Who is eligible to participate?

The Mentor Program targets Diederich College juniors who are in good academic standing (minimum grade point average of 2.0).

Who are the mentors?

Mentors are selected by the Diederich College of Communication Alumni Association board and represent various areas of the communication profession. They are generally alumni who have expressed interest in working with students and who have been successful in their careers.

What is my commitment?

At a minimum, student and mentor should meet monthly for one hour. After mentor and student are introduced, the student is responsible for contacting the mentor and getting on the mentor’s calendar. Participants must also complete a mentor-student contract and development plan, focused on meeting schedule, discussion topics and goals.
