Alumni Mentor Program

AMP logoThere are many ways for alumni like you to continue your relationship with WesternU. Our goal is to connect WesternU alumni and students whether it’s staying in touch with classmates or passing on your knowledge to the next generation of students.

The WesternU Alumni Mentor Program (AMP) provides an opportunity for current students and alumni to network in a mutually rewarding relationship that is based on student academic and professional goals. Through this program, alumni will be able to provide guidance to current students by sharing their career and WesternU experiences. As an alumni mentor, you will have the opportunity to advise student(s) on career advice and professional development for the academic year.  Throughout this time period, we encourage mentors and mentees to connect at least once a month via phone, virtual meeting, or email. Mentors and mentees are welcome to connect more than once a month if they wish.

Current students and alumni do not have to be near campus to participate. Whether you are in Pomona, CA or in New York, NY, your time is valued!

Program Goals

  1. Increase engagement between WesternU alumni and current students
  2. Provide a valuable experience for alumni and students
  3. Engage colleges and campus partners to support students and alumni
