The goal for the programme

The main goal for the Programme is to connect alumni and students in a meaningful way, thereby creating a mutual benefit, and cementing a stronger relationship between all involved: the students, the alumni, and the department. The participating departments are responsible for responding to the needs of the students and alumni, and pair them.

The alumni coordinators at the External Relations and Communications Office are responsible for the overall structure of the programme and will organize a series of events during the course of the programme. The alumni coordinators at the participating departments recruit alumni and students to match within the program. The objective for the events in the calendar below is to solidify the engagement of the mentors and mentees in the program, provide professional development activities, as well as to inspire and motivate the participants.

The first Mentorship Programme kicked off in October 2019 with dedicated participants.
