Mentorship

At one point or another we all have had a mentor, whether that is a parent, colleague, supervisor, or friend, who has connected us to opportunity, lifted us up with supportive advice, or helped us achieve or define our goals. Through the LSA Summer Mentorship Program you will get a chance to support current LSA students in their professional growth, assist the LSA Young Alumni Council in contributing to a well-rounded undergraduate experience, and establish a relationship with an LSA student. In addition, we want you to complete the program having grown your own leadership and coaching skills while reflecting on how your liberal arts education has helped you get to where you are today.  

 

Who do I contact to learn more about the program?

For more information about the program email Joseph Murray at jhmurr@umich.edu. We are happy to send you information regarding mentor guidelines, a detailed program timeline, or specific topic descriptions of each meeting.

How do I apply for the program?

We are no longer seeking participants for the 2017 program. If you'd like to participate email Joseph Murray at jhmurr@umich.edu. Keep an eye out for information regarding the 2018 program in the spring!

Program Update

Thanks to everyone who made the 2017 Summer Mentorship program a huge success! Over eighty pairs of alumni and students in fifteen regions across the globe connected this summer and learned from each other. We are currently working with the LSA Opportunity Hub to expand the College's mentorship efforts for 2018. As more students and alumni express interest, we are exploring ways to scale our programming and make the benefits of mentorship accessible to as many people as possible. Stay tuned!
