Bright Futures People

The Bright Futures Student-Alumni Mentoring Program is back in Session 2, 2019! The program is a collaborative project between Alumni and Development and Careers & Employability. This exciting program is designed to match students with alumni in a related industry and provides a learning experience for students that connects the classroom to the ‘real world’. Mentoring relationships are:

  • Professional in nature
  • Enhance connections between study and the world of work
  • Assist students with the transition from university to employment
  • Provide an opportunity for professional development, networking and idea exchange between experienced professionals and the next generation of leaders
  • Involve alumni (and industry) back in the life of the University in a meaningful way.
