"I have loved spending time with my mentee. I have invited her to join me during my department meetings and at a city-wide event so far. It is an easy lift to connect a bright, talented and committed student to my colleagues and professional network. Alumni love to reach back and help a Fels student any chance they get, and the Mentor Program provides the perfect vehicle."
