Marquette Mentors, the mentor program of the Marquette University Alumni Association, emerged ten years ago as a pilot to meet a significant and increasing demand for students to gain career insights from alumni across the globe. Today, this high-touch, 1:1 and goals-driven initiative has served more than 1,200 student mentees by matching current students and Marquette alumni based upon college, major and career interest.

Be thoughtful when completing the application, specifically with the questions requesting your program goals if selected and why you’d like to be considered as a mentee.
