During the USP 50th Anniversary celebration, the new Mentorship Program to match alumni with current Urban Studies students was launched.
The inspiration for this program comes from:
- the realization that current USP students would benefit tremendously from a connection with our alums, who could share their rich experiences and knowledge of what it means to work in their particular field; and
- many alums have expressed a desire to give back and stay connected to Urban Studies. We feel that a mentorship program would be a perfect match!
Although the final details of the program are still being developed, the program would essentially match a current student with an alum in an arrangement involving a few meetings/contacts over the course of the academic semester. Participants would not have to be local.
We are asking that interested alums fill out the Alumni Update Form.
