CUI Connect Mentor Program

CUI Connect Mentor Program

The CUI Connect Mentor Program is intended to foster relationships between alumni and students through one-on-one guidance, advice, and communication. Student "Mentees" are paired with Alumni "Mentors" 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 CUI. 

Launching in October and concluding in April, the CUI Connect Mentor Program offers monthly speakers and tips to guide both the mentee and mentor 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 CUI Connect Mentor Program is managed through CUI Connect: the gateway to the Eagle Network. CUI 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 CUI Connect's Business Directory and Resources gives users exclusive offers and networking opportunities, too! Download the CUI Connect app for faster access on the Google Play Story (search "CUI Connect") or Apple Store (search "Graduway Community" and then select Concordia University Irvine).
