The Humphrey School offers a mentoring program that connects Humphrey students with alumni who share similar professional interests. These connections help students develop substantive knowledge in their chosen field, as well as refine strategies for finding meaningful work.
There are two mentor programs at Humphrey:
- The domestic mentor program is open to first- and second-year students and matches students with local mentors working in domestic policy or planning in Minnesota
- The global mentor program connects mentors doing international work with second year Humphrey students who hope to develop international careers themselves. Global mentors can be working anywhere in the world. They will largely connect with their protégés via email, Skype and other distance technologies.
Applications for both mentor programs typically open early in fall semester. After mentors and mentees are paired up, they will generally meet about once a month (in-person or virtually) until the end of the program in May.
