Each fellow candidate in the Cook Leadership Academy is paired with a community mentor for the academic year. The candidate and mentor work as a team, helping the candidate tap their potential and think about ways they can improve their leadership skills to best reach their goals. Mentors come from many sectors of the community including non-profit, business, and public backgrounds. Each is dedicated to supporting student learning by providing insights into our group of future community leaders.
“We discussed how as nurses we can seek opportunities for our own professional growth and development and how to advocate for our selves in the workplace. Overall, it was a great year of mentorship! I was able to learn and reflect a lot before I end my college career.”
