Dean's Alumni Ambassadors

Our Dean's Alumni Ambassadors play a valuable role in the recruitment of prospective students and career enhancement of current students.

Dean's Alumni Ambassadors have a variety of opportunities to get involved:


Mentoring a student can be one of the most rewarding ways to support the school. As a mentor, you provide career development and guidance, advice and ideas to students. Best of all, you have full discretion to determine your time commitment. Mentoring can be as simple as a single phone call, connecting via social media, an email exchange or an in-depth conversation over a cup of coffee—your choice based on your schedule.

What Does a Mentor Do?

Mentoring is more than advising; it is a personal, as well as, professional relationship. A mentor provides advice and encouragement in order to help another person develop into a successful professional. Share your knowledge, give emotional support and moral encouragement, provide feedback, help find professional development opportunities, and always try to be a good listener and good problem-solver.

Admissions Reviewer

The perspective and experience of our alumni greatly enriches the selection of our P1 class.
