Northwestern Network Mentorship Program

The Northwestern Alumni Association (NAA) has launched a new mentorship program that cultivates meaningful mentorship opportunities within the Northwestern community. Watch the intro video here to learn more. The program launched in February to students in three pilot industries, but all students are welcome to join right now. Student and alumni mentees can use the platform to search for a mentor who best matches their current and future professional goals and submit a request to work with a that mentor. Alumni mentors may either accept or decline a mentorship request. If the request is accepted, the mentor and mentee connect via the platform to set their first meeting. To register, visit the program registration page here.
