A Celebration of Mentorship at the I School
We’re delighted to present our third annual Outstanding Mentor Awards and to celebrate the impact of mentorship at the I School!
Join us to honor our award recipients and hear from a few current mentors on what mentorship has meant to them.
The I School mentorship programs support all of our professional degree programs as well as the Leadership Development Program for Gender Equity. During the last academic year, over 200 students and alumni volunteered their time to mentor incoming and early program students, ensuring a smooth transition to graduate school and additional support in their job or internship searches.
Thank you to all of our 2022–2023 mentors!
Congratulations, 2023 Outstanding Mentor Award Winners!
