Mentoring Program

Alumni Mentor Program

 

The Webster Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for students to connect in a positive one-on-one mentoring relationship.

Note: During the academic year (2019-2020), we will put the Webster Mentoring Program on hold and undertake a review to determine how to improve the program and to strengthen the opportunity that is so beneficial to our students. 

A Special Opportunity

Through this program, mentors can provide guidance and support to students by interacting with them, exchanging ideas, and sharing their experiences and knowledge of career paths. Mentors serve as role models and leaders as they help students reach their career goals.
