Feature

Be a mentor

From M, fall 2007

The UMAA is seeking volunteers to serve as mentors for students in numerous disciplines. A mentor is someone who helps foster the development of a student's career interests, making himself or herself available to answer questions, assist with r?sum? writing or interviewing tips, introduce the student to people who are working in the field, or help with other career-related activities. Mentors are asked to give between two and four hours per month to their mentee, either by phone or e-mail or in person. The program runs from October through April. The University also offers structured get-togethers and provides coaching for those new to mentoring. For more information, contact Trish Will at 612-626-0425 or e-mail.
