The College of Design (CDes) facilitates an annual program that helps students grow professionally by matching them with a mentor in their field of study. Together, mentoring pairs create individualized action plans which help students with career exploration, experiential learning, networking, and skill building.
The time commitment is approximately two hours per month, from November through April, and is determined by the mentor and student during initial meetings.

2013-14 Student and Mentor applications will be available in August.
