How It Works

The Owl to Owl Mentor Program is structured around four virtual/online meetings over the course of two semesters. Students and mentors will be matched by criteria that will be mutually beneficial to both participants.

  • First meeting: Introductory meeting between mentor and student
  • Second meeting: Mentor shares their professional experience and career path  
  • Third Meeting: Mentor takes student on virtual workplace visit
  • Fourth Meeting: Mentors and student review experience and map out future connection

While every effort will be made to pair a student with an appropriate alumnus/ae, student registration does not guarantee that a student will be paired with a mentor.
