HR Mentor Program

Published on September, 25 2012 at 12:00am

Starting this fall, the Human Rights Institute will be sponsoring a Human Rights Mentoring Program.


The mentoring program will not only build community among Human Rights students, but will also aid students in getting advice about study abroad programs, internships, and graduate school applications. Students will be matched on the basis of their primary disciplines and similar interests. Graduate students will serve as mentors for undergraduate students in their junior or senior year; junior and seniors will serve as mentors for freshmen and sophomores.


You can participate in this program at a variety of levels. You can choose to have a mentor, serve as a mentor for an individual student, or if you would like a smaller commitment, you can advise on a specific issue (for example, if a student had a specific question about traveling to a particular region). Mentors and mentorees will decide together how much time will be dedicated to their mentoring relationship.


If you are interested in becoming a part of the Human Rights Mentoring Program, please take a few minutes to provide your information via this SurveyMonkey link.


There will be a Meet and Greet Lunch on October 5th in the Dodd Center Public Lounge from 11:30a to 1:30p for anyone interested in the mentoring program. We hope to see you there!
