Information for Mentors
As a UofGH Alumni Mentor, your role will be to act as a guide, friend, and resource. You are encouraged to share your educational and professional experiences to help pave the way for current students to succeed at UofGH and beyond. Both mentees and mentors will provide UofGH Alumni Services with personal and professional goals and other details to help guide the matching process. Matches are based on areas of shared interest, preferred methods of communication, level of commitment to the program, and other considerations.
