The Center for Leadership is excited to offer two mentorship programs for students and alumni to connect and share knowledge and experiences.

 

 

 

 

1. Mentors for Clubs & Organizations

  • Alumni participants:
    • Former club officers who would like to reconnect with their organization and meet current student officers
    • Mentors should be available for at least three meetings (about 30 minutes each via phone or video).
    • Alumni and students will be connected on an ongoing basis.
  • Student participants:
    • Current club officers who would like to foster relationships with alumni from their organization
  • Goals:
    • Students will build relationships and learn from former club leaders. Alumni will re-connect with their organization and contribute to their community by sharing advice and engaging with current members. 

 

How do I get started?

  1. Students and alumni should request to join the Center for Leadership program in Cal Poly Career Connections.
  2. Please contact leadership@calpoly.edu to learn about the matching process and to receive mentorship guidelines. 

2. Mentors for Leadership Certificate Students

Alumni mentors are paired with students enrolled in our Emerging Leaders Series.

  • Alumni participants:
    • Alumni from any professional background are welcome!
    • Mentors should be available for three meetings (about 30 min each via phone or video) over the course of the quarter.
    • Alumni can apply to be a mentor at any point in the year. We match mentors with students in the leadership certificates at the beginning of Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters.
    • Mentors can opt into mentoring each quarter depending on availability.
  • Student participants:
    • Students enrolled in the Emerging Leaders Series will be matched with a mentor at the beginning of the series.
  • Goals:
    • Students will practice relationship-building skills and engage in a dialogue about what leadership can look like. Alumni will share stories and advice and learn about the current Cal Poly student experience.
