Networking with your Bulldog family can help you get ahead in life and career, but where do you even start? The UGA Mentor Program narrows down the world of possibilities to meaningful connections. We are personalizing the networking experience; connecting you with experienced UGA mentors (staff, faculty, and alumni) that are just right for your commitment.
Getting started is easy. Simply create a profile on our digital platform, complete a webtraining, then instantly begin searching for a mentor using a variety of search criteria including: identity, industry, major, location and more. If you’re not sure where to start, there are guidelines, icebreakers and resources on this site to guide you along the way.
What’s the commitment?
- 16-week mentorship (1-2 hours per month)
- Informational interviews (20-30 minutes)
- Ask questions, be curious
- Express gratitude
Informational interviews more your style?
If a 16-week mentorship doesn’t suit your schedule, connect with a UGA Mentor for a 30-minute conversation around work, life and career. You may even find that you two would make a good mentoring match.

Connect from anywhere
You can connect with your mentor through the website wherever you have internet access - making it easier to fit into your busy schedule.
