Alumni Mentors

We hope to bring a vast network of professionals and successful alumni directly to mentees! This is why instead of a traditional 1:1 mentorship pairing, we are building a Mentor Directory who are interested in facilitating micro-connections. Think of this as coffee chats: short informal meetings that can be built upon to meet the needs of the student–mentor pairing. Mentors and mentees will also have opportunities to connect during in-person networking nights.

Student and Recent Graduate Mentees

Gain access to a directory of alumni mentors, inviting you to connect with them! These connections can look like; an email, a phone call, a zoom call, or a coffee chat. Unlike a cold call, these alumni mentors are excited about connecting with mentees and are happy to discuss their professional pathways. Mentees will also be invited to attend a few networking events offered each semester to continue to meet more alumni and build connections.

Ways to Connect

Within the program, there are three methods to connect with mentors/mentees!

SMC Alumni Directory, accessible to registered program mentees, showcases Mentors professional information, similar to a LinkedIn profile.

Coffee Chats

From the Alumni Directory, mentees will reach out through email to set up a phone call, a Zoom call, or a coffee chat. At this point, how the connection progresses is up to you!

In-Person Socials

Socials, such as networking nights, are bi-semester events! Socials serve as an introduction to the program and provide an opportunity for networking and relationship-building.
