The College of Human Ecology recently launched a Professional Mentoring Program and is seeking alumni and friends to become professional mentors for K-State students.

The program provides students with the opportunity to learn from successful and experienced mentors who will volunteer their time to help students prepare professionally and succeed in their chosen career and bridge the gap between academics and the world of work by providing career and professional advice, networking opportunities and insight into the job market within their disciplines. 

Junior, senior and graduate students in all majors within the college will be matched with professional mentors who have at least five years of work experience within related career fields.

Mentoring can take as little as an hour of your time each month, yet it can have a great impact on students. Mentors will provide insight about the various careers within academic fields and advise students on professional development within their discipline.

For questions or to apply, contact Pamela Erickson, Professional Mentoring Program director, at Additional information can be found at
