Alumni Mentors: Good Guidance

The Alumni Mentors program pairs motivated upper-year students, graduate students and recent graduates with an alumni mentor. Mentors are established professionals who help students and recent graduates develop skills for the workplace and expand their professional networks. The program is offered in partnership between the Department of University Advancement and the Carleton University Alumni Association.


Mentors are Carleton alumni who are seasoned professionals and industry leaders prepared to share their knowledge, resources and passion. Alumni who earned their degree 5 or more years ago are welcome to apply. Mentoring is a great way to stay connected to the Carleton community and contribute to the success of current and future Carleton alumni.
