Walker EDGE Mentor Connections
The Walker EDGE Office encourages students to participate in mentoring partnerships to develop a professional network and receive professional guidance. Student mentees gain valuable insight beyond their education and experiences by receiving access to a professional support system at a critical time of career development. There are currently two ways to get involved in mentoring:
The Webster Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for students and alumni to connect
in a positive one-on-one mentoring relationship. Through this six-month program, students
gain guidance and support from select alumni through professional interactions, the
exchanging of ideas, and learning from their personal experiences and knowledge of
career paths. Alumni mentors give back to Webster by serving as role models and leaders
as they help students reach their career goals.

Every academic year, the Walker School encourages students to participate in the Regional
Business Council (RBC) Mentor Network. These students are individually paired with
a CEO or top executive of an RBC company to receive practical, “real world” knowledge
and advice on post-graduate opportunities. This is a selective program with a focus
on students committed to the St. Louis Region. International students are encouraged
The application process for the 2016-2017 Mentor Network will open in May 2016. Find out more information about the RBC Higher Education Collaboration and the Mentor Network at www.stlrbc.org/highered.
