Seidman Mentorship Program

Seidman Mentorship Program

Exciting Opportunity!

We believe that success requires collaboration, perspective, and networking. These skills become even more valuable as you continue, both professionally and personally.  At Seidman, we recognize this and have developed a groundbreaking mentorship program that fosters learning agility for students and mentors.

Freshman mentees are paired with peers, usually, junior and senior students, who can introduce them to Laker Life, help identify interests, possible career paths, and navigate the university.  Peer mentors are themselves mentored by business professionals who help them explore careers, establish a work-life balance, and provide a sounding board for life's questions.

The only requirement is to check in with your mentee, virtually, by phone, or live, twice per month.  Most mentors spend about 1 hour per month on the program.

We invite you to join us as a first-year mentee, peer mentor, or professional who wants to mentor an advanced GV student.  Should you choose to join us, we will pair you based on mutual interests, both professional and personal.  Benefits include:

  • Thoughtful pairing to a mentor partner
  • Options to communicate via text, phone, video, or live
  • Support via the SCB Mentorship office
  • Invitations to SBC Mentorship networking and community events
  • Satisfaction of giving back to GV and making a difference in a student’s life
