Become a Jackson School Mentor


The Jackson School Mentor Program was started in Fall 2011 to enrich and support the personal and professional goals of students at the Jackson School of International Studies. The Jackson School Mentor Program matches each student with an experienced mentor from the Jackson School Alumni based on similar academic and professional backgrounds.

Our goal is to assist students in their transition from their academic to their professional life and provide them with a network to encourage the exploration of their career aspirations.

Please see the Jackson School Mentor Program website to learn more about mentoring opportunities and how to get involved.
