Illuminating Mentorship Program

Illuminating Mentorship Program

The Illuminating Mentorship Program is intended to foster relationships between alumni and students through one-on-one guidance, advice, and communication. Student "Mentees" are paired with Alumni "Illuminators" based on major and/or anticipated industry with an alumnus in a similar career. This program is meant to add value to a student's education and experience at Concordia.

Launching in October and concluding in April, the Illuminating Mentorship Program offers monthly topics and tips to guide both the mentee and Illuminator through a successful partnership that is mutually beneficial. All interactions are recommended to be digital and the mentees are encouraged to take initiative to set up at least 3-5 phone calls, video chats, or emails. 

The Illuminating Mentorship Program is managed through Concordia Connect: the gateway to the Golden Eagle Network. Concordia Connect is a hub for students, alumni, faculty, staff, and parents to offer and seek help with mentorship, internship, industry advice, resume review, and more. Access to Concordia Connect's Business Directory and Resources gives users exclusive offers and networking opportunities, too! Download the Concordia Connect app for faster access on the Google Play Story (search "Concordia Connect") or Apple Store (search "Graduway Community" and then select Concordia University Irvine).
