Honors Alumni-Student Mentoring Program
The USU Honors Program is looking for alumni interested in sharing professional advice with current honors students in fields related to their own. The program fosters meaningful professional relationships between current honors students and alumni mentors and helps to build and sustain our honors alumni network. After a successful pilot year, in which we paired 32 students with individual alumni mentors, we are hoping to continue to expand the program in the 2016–2017 academic year.
Mentors and students connect with each other monthly via email, phone, Skype, or even in person, as circumstances allow. The Honors Program facilitates and focuses these mentor-student partnerships by providing students with specific questions, guidelines, and monthly tasks to complete with their mentors. The topics of the monthly check-ins will range from creating a resume to building a professional network, from interviewing effectively to using social media professionally.
If you are interested in mentoring a current honors student during the 2016–2017 academic year, please complete the form below with information that will help us to make useful mentor-student matches.
In addition to the Alumni Mentoring Program, Honors also supports a LinkedIn group, and we would be happy to contact students about any internship or job opportunities that you would like to publicize through Honors. Please send specific inquiries and/or information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
