SLU Department of Communication professional mentoring sign-up for students
The Department of Communication at SLU has a professional mentoring program for students who are interested in receiving mentoring from professionals in communication industries.
SLU Communication undergraduate majors and minors, as well as graduate students, can sign up to be paired with an alum or community member who has volunteered to share their knowledge with students as they prepare to enter the professional world.
If you opt for online or in-person mentoring, we will do our best to match you with someone who works in the field in which you're interested, and the frequency of contact will be determined by the professional. (Please remember these are working professionals who have graciously volunteered their time to help you and other students.)
The mentoring program is organized by the Department of Communication and its advisory board. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the department's advisory board liaison Dr. Amber Hinsley at
