Alumni Mentoring Program

Mentoring a current Honors student is great way to stay connected to the University Honors Program, pass on your knowledge, and make a difference in the life of an Honors student.

With over 1,600 students participating in the Honors Program, we can pair you with a student whose interests and career goals are similar to your own. As a Mentor, you will have the opportunity to help your mentee . . .

  • Visualize a clear career path and options
  • Practice networking skills 
  • Prepare for the professional world

University Honors can match you with students from any academic discipline ranging from pre-law, pre-medicine and pharmacy to business, engineering, journalism, to humanities and social science and more!

To become an Honors Alumni Mentor, contact our Assistant Director for Advising Ed Healy.
