Join Mentor Collective at AUM

Whether you’re a mentor or mentee, you can build impactful relationships through the Mentor Collective Program at AUM.

AUM has partnered with Mentor Collective to enhance the student experience by linking them one-on-one with a peer mentor. Students can participate in the program as mentors or as a mentee.

Student mentees are paired with someone invested in their success — a person ready to listen, inspire, help navigate challenges and recognize opportunities. Students learn what to expect in school, how to approach challenges, gain career advice and valuable insights. Students can be connected with an AUM upper-division student based on interests, area of study, needs, and preferences.

Mentors build their networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders while participating in the classroom. Mentors take part in a year-long commitment and can conduct in-person or virtual meetings with their mentee.
