Alumni & Friends
There are a variety of ways to mentor MSU Denver students
Mentoring is a meaningful way to build relationships between MSU Denver alumni and current students. The connections made in this program help prepare our students for a successful future and leave a lasting impact on our campus community.
There are a variety of programs at MSU Denver that alumni can participate in based on your interest, experience and availablity:
ROADRUNNER ADVISOR NETWORK
The MSU Denver Advisor Network is a powerful online tool to help MSU Denver alumni connect with current students to provide career advice and guidance. As an alumni mentor will help students and young alumni find the expertise they need to fulfill their professional goals, practice for a big interview, and/or get insight into a particular career field or industry.
Constructing Connections is a mentor program for Spring 2020 graduates formed by Haselden Construction's Lean-In group and the MSU Denver Champions program. Mentors are expected to connect with the new graduate/mentee once a week for one hour, especially in the beginning. Scheduling a convenient routine to connect will be at the discretion of the mentor and mentee. We would expect the mentoring connection be about three months.
COLLEGE OF BUSINESS
The mission of this program is to provide professional enrichment to selected students, allow alumni to give back and help groom the next generation of business leaders, and further grow the power of the MSU Denver community. Alumni with 5 years of professional experience in Accounting, Banking, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Computer Information Systems, Analytics, or Entrepreneurship are encouraged to apply.
FIRST YEAR EXPLORATORY PROGRAM
The Alumni Association in collaboration with the Classroom to Career Hub-Student Support and Retention seeks to create strategic and meaningful opportunities to connect exploratory students with alumni for basic major/industry/career discovery and guidance. Alumni will be added to a resource directory for first-year students to contact as needed. This is not a formal mentorship program, rather an opportunity to make connections (mentorship relationships may evolve).
