Share your valuable career and life experiences with our current students and help them advance in their futures. As an alumni career mentor, you can pass on the insights you’ve gained since your time as a SPEA student.
Alumni Career Mentor Program
How does the Alumni Career Mentor Program work?
- Get your student match
You will be matched with a student based on one or more of the following:
We'll take the information you provide through the Get Involved form—your skills, profession, location, and major—so that we can make the best possible match.
- Your mentee will contact you
Once a match is made, you will be sent your mentee’s information. Your mentee will contact you within one week. If you can schedule an in-person meeting anytime during your mentorship, it makes for an even better experience—but is not required.
- Make a big impact with a small investment of time
We only ask our alumni mentors for a three-month commitment, and to contact their mentee at least once a month. After three months if you want to continue, that’s great! If want another mentee, we can arrange that and you can always have more than one mentee.
I believe in the importance of giving back to Indiana University. Mentoring is a great way for me to do that. I truly enjoy mentoring students, speaking in the classroom, and participating in panel discussions on campus. If a few minutes of my time can make a positive impact on a student, that pays dividends for the individual as well as for the university—Steve Eller, BSPA’84, Personnel and Labor Relations
