Learn About Mentoring

Stay connected to life as a student or young alumni by becoming a mentor. Mentoring is a unique opportunity for alumni to form both a meaningful relationship with a student or young alumni and to strength ties to the College at the same time.

By mentoring, you provide insight, friendship and career guidance, exposing them to your career path and life perspective. Mentors also provide inspiration and support, assisting students in forging their own way on campus and in the world. Together, mentors and students form a community that extends well beyond the Morningside campus.

To become part of a student's life, you can:

  • Take a student for a meal or coffee
  • Host a job-shadowing day at your workplace
  • Make yourself available to a student, whether in person, by phone or via email, to discuss life at Columbia College, careers or life at large

Here are some communities to mentor in:
