For Mentors

ALUMS: ROCKET FUEL FOR LAUNCH.

We’re looking for a few good alums. People like you. Your experience, your insights, your time. When you mentor a Drew student, you do good in the world while boosting your own network.

One easy way to indicate your interest in mentoring students is to join Drew Connect. Getting started on Drew Connect is simple. Our easy-to-use networking platform is your online gateway to the powerful, worldwide Drew community. Whether you are looking for a career change yourself or want to provide advice and guidance to our students, Drew Connect is the place to start!

Get Involved

The Center for Mentoring and Professional Networks engages alums and other community members to support our students’ development of a broad network of connections (social capital) in a variety of ways, including:

  • One-to-one, short-term, connections with students to offer them advice about a variety of topics including time management, adulting, choosing a major, career paths, etc.
  • Membership on Drew Connect so students can connect with you at any time.
  • Involvement in classes as requested by faculty to speak, offer feedback on student presentations, or otherwise participate in the class.
  • Participation in panel discussions for students.
  • Involvement in formal and informal networking opportunities, in-person and/or virtual.
  • Engagement in a long-term mentorship with a student directed by the Center.
  • Short-term job-shadowing opportunities.
  • Writing or producing content for Center resources.
