The Online Mentorship Program
provides USF students with an opportunity to connect with Mentors, who can give advice, information, and support. The student selects a suitable mentor among the USF Alumni, Faculty, or Staff who register for the program, based on shared interests, goals, and areas of expertise. Mentors can quickly and easily create a personal profile for the Online Mentorship Program by downloading their resume from LinkedIn. If you haven't joined yet, now is the time to make new connections through USF!
