The intent of the program is for graduate students to welcome and provide support and guidance to undergraduate students with an interest in pursuing academic or other professional careers. These exchanges provide undergraduate students the opportunity to learn more about graduate school life, the application process, and alternative academic options to name a few from experienced graduate students. The mentorship program, moreover, offers undergraduate students the opportunity to form relationships with future potential colleagues. The initial extent of the commitment would be for mentees and mentors to meet for a brief conversation at an agreed-upon time during Kalamazoo. The continuation of the mentor relationship after the conference is at the discretion of the parties involved.
