Make a difference - become a mentor to SU students and alumni

Each day, SU faculty and staff touch the lives of students and provide them with a transformative educational experience.  We provide opportunities for consideration of vocation, professional formation and discernment of career options as we prepare them to be leaders for a just and humane world. One very key component of preparation for embarking on any career path is seeking advice and connecting with those who have traveled the path before you. Here are two ways to make a difference. 

Become a Mentor

Career Services seeks alumni, faculty, staff and community members from all professions and from all levels in their careers to join the mentor program. You were once in their shoes. This is your chance to share the knowledge and insight they need to shape the world of tomorrow. Join the Redhawk Network Mentor Program and make yourself available to mentees in ways that fit your schedule. 

Encourage Alumni to Become Mentors

Our students and alumni are making a difference as leaders throughout the world, and the Redhawk Network Mentor program offers opportunities to connect with SU, our students, and our alumni no matter their location. If you work with alumni or friends of Seattle University who have offered to support students, this program is a great opportunity to connect them in a meaningful way. Mentors can choose the level of involvement and activities most comfortable to them, whether they live near or far.
