Mentor a College of Design student

The 2009-10 College of Design Mentor Program is an annual program that helps undergraduate and graduate students grow professionally by matching them with a mentor in their field of study. This is an excellent opportunity to work with students and provide advice; especially in tough economic times. The time commitment is approximately two hours per month, but is determined by the mentor and student.

More information and an application are available on the college Web site or contact Lucy Reile at or 612-624-1245. If you have mentored in the past several years, you can login (follow the prompts on the application) to update your past information.

New this year: If you would like more information and/or training on being a mentor, Student Services is offering a training session on Thursday, September 24, 2009 from 8-9 a.m. in 225 Rapson Hall. Coffee and a light breakfast will be served. This will help give you ideas of ways to work with your student as well as a chance to connect with other mentors. Please e-mail Lucy to RSVP at
