Connect Alumni Mentoring Program

2004 Connect Summer ProgramThe Connect Alumni Mentoring Program is an extension of the UNH Pathways Alumni/Student Mentoring program, fostering a partnership between Connect student participants and UNH alumni who have participated in Connect. Through this  one-to-one mentoring program, alumni will have the opportunity to share their post-college experiences with students and provide insight on how to be successful at UNH and in the post-college world.  This opportunity will allow  our multicultural, first-generation and low income students  to build career networks and grow as professionals and leaders.

The program runs during the same time as the UNH Pathways Program, which is September to April.  It is structured around monthly mentor and mentee meetings, and includes two on-campus meetings (please see below) for the entire Pathways and Connect Alumni Mentoring group. This year, we will commemorate the implementation of the Connect Alumni Mentoring Program and the 22nd anniversary of the Connect Program at the Connect Alumni Reunion on Saturday, October 11, 2014. More details about the event will be forthcoming.
