AMPed UP! Alumni Mentorship Program
The University Honors Program at ISU is making efforts to promote student success. We hope to help each individual excel both before and after graduation. As a part of our efforts, we have established an Alumni Mentorship Program known as “AMPed UP!”. Similar programs have been used in other universities and have experienced great success.
AMPed UP! pairs current Honors Program students with Honors Program alumni mentors according to major or program. In a collaborative effort, the alumni mentor will work with the current student on professional development, resumes, networking, and other relevant topics. The intended outcome of AMPed UP! is to build meaningful connections that will continue to be advantageous after graduation as well as prepare students to reach their individual post-graduation goals.
We believe this program will benefit both the student and you. This is an opportunity to continue to develop leadership skills, create meaningful friendships, and positively affect those who are quickly coming into the workforce. The alumni mentor and the student will meet approximately once a month. Guidelines for each appointment will be provided. Depending on the pairing, location, and schedules of the participants, this program may be conducted in-person or virtually. We encourage you to engage in 6 one-on-one sessions, lasting approximately 30 to 45 min.
More than ever, this program needs valuable Bengals like you who are committed to creating strong and beneficial mentor-mentee relationships. All Honors Alumni Mentors will have the chance to foster a positive relationship with a current UHP student to provide career preparation, character development, and support.
We encourage you to participate in the Honors Alumni Mentorship Program!
