Be a Mentor
Share your story! Mentorship allows students and mentors the chance to connect about career and networking. True mentoring is much more than just answering occasional questions, it’s an ongoing relationship of learning, dialogue and challenge. This form of experiential learning can be very powerful and inspirational to students who are learning about potential paths for after graduation and want to know the stories of UBC alumni who went through the same process.
Throughout the school year, there are a number of ways for alumni to connect with students here on campus. The various programs below provide information on how to get involved as a mentor and help alumni stay connected with UBC and individual faculties.
