Gustavus Mentoring Program

Mentoring program

2017-2018 Mentoring Matching Complete! 

Check back in Spring 2018 for information regrading the matching process for 2018-2019.


The Gustavus Mentoring Program matches Gustavus students with a Gustavus alum, parent, or friend for a mentoring relationship.


Develop meaningful & impactful relationships with Gustavus Alumni.

Participants should be in their Sophomore, Junior, or Senior year. Mentoring pairs work together to:
  • Assist in preparing students for the transition to professional life upon graduation
  • Realization that many career paths are non-linear and encourage students to keep an open mind and explore varied possibilities
  • Accept coaching to enhance and develop interpersonal, professional, and leadership skills
  • Assist in building a professional network

The program runs late October - May. Mentoring pairs are expected to make contact at least once per month. Conversation starters will be provided to offer guidance on discussion topics. For mentor information click here.
