APDPro Mentor Program
The mission of the APDPro Mentor Program is to afford design and planning students the opportunity to learn from skilled and practiced professionals who can help guide them and provide advice as they transition to their career.
Becoming an APDPro Mentor will give you the opportunity to connect with current students, play a part in developing future leaders in the design and planning professions and, hopefully, learn from the students as well.
Students participating in the program are 3rd, 4th and 5th year students active in APDPro, the college's professional development program.Mentor Requirements
- Professional in design, planning or any related fields
- Committed to being a mentor and staying in contact with mentee
- Communicate with mentee once per month via phone, email, video chat, text or in person
- Professional relationship will last until the mentee graduates
Recently, the APDPro Mentor Program transitioned to a new web-based platform,WildcatLink, which also hosts mentoring programs across campus. Features of this new platform include improving communication between mentor/mentee pairs via specific goals, a discussion board and more resources, as well as the opportunity to network with other alumni.
In addition to being in a formal mentoring relationship, APDPro Mentors can join the WildcatLink community to provide advice to any student on the platform via "Flash Mentoring" (one-time interaction via student's request).
