Baskin Mentor Network
The Baskin Engineering Mentor Network program enhances the student experience by linking students with alumni. Students are paired with someone invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities.
Students will learn what to expect in school, how to approach challenges, gain career advice and valuable insights, while mentors develop skills to become better professionals and leaders.
Students will be matched with an alumni based on common interests, background, academics and professional aspirations. To get started, students and mentors register and complete an online survey to assess personality and experience.
What Mentors and Students Discuss:
- How will my major impact my professional options?
- How do I balance the demands of school, responsibilities, and socializing?
- How can I set myself up for academic, social, and career success?
- How do I make connections with peers and professional contacts?
"I'm really excited to have someone there for me. It's nice knowing that I'm not completely alone and hopefully can be someone I can reach out to if I'm having a hard time in school or other activities."
"[My mentor] helped me answer the question of how to form strong relationships with my professors by giving me an actionable strategy to having strong purposeful visits to their office hours."
"I'm volunteering to mentor because I've been fortunate enough to have mentors who guided me throughout my academic and professional careers & I feel like I am finally able to give back."
