About the Program

  • It is very successful in enhancing the undergraduate student experience at University College.
  • Our dynamic team of alumni mentors is integral to the success of this program.
  • The UC Career Mentorship Program is a joint venture of the UC Advancement Office and the University College Student Life Office.
  • The Career Mentorship Program is not a job placement service and students agree not to solicit employment from alumni mentors.

Positive Impact

"The mentorship program was helpful in bridging the gap between what it's like to face problems in the real world-- how to set a course for yourself --and how we think those problems would unfold while we're still in school. I would do it again.”

Joel Crocker,

“A mentor is a person who is interested in your development, a motivator, a coach and, ultimately, a person who wants to help your achieve your goals.”
