Student-Alumni Mentoring Program Launched

February 23, 2011

In an effort to connect current students with alumni who can provide advice and support throughout the law school experience, the USF School of Law has launched Connections, a new web-based mentoring program.



Connections will kick off on March 1 with a university-wide networking event on campus for students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The event will include an online demonstration of the program, speed networking, mentorship success stories, and free professional portraits for early registrants. Information and registration is available here.

The new program is part of a university-wide effort that began with the College of Arts and Sciences last year and is now expanding to include all five USF schools and colleges.

Connections is an online system provided by Edge on College that allows mentors and mentees to create profiles, including details about career goals. Alumni and students begin by registering online, then students select one or more mentors from the database, initiate the first contact, and take the lead on staying in touch. Mentors do not have to be located in the Bay Area. Communications with mentees can take place over email, phone, Skype, or in person.

For more information and to register for Connections, go to www.usfca.edu/law/alumni/mentor.
