MPA Mentor Program
Every fall semester MPA students are invited to participate in the alumni mentorship program. We pair students with an alumnus or community mentor based upon career interests. Mentors and mentees are expected to meet 1-2 times per semester.
In the first meeting, meeting times and goals are established. During the spring semester, mentors and mentees share what they learned together at the annual MPA Celebrating Students Event. Mentors help to provide career advice. For more information, contact Associate Dean and MPA Director Dr. Sara Rinfret.
