Mentors are selected for a 2-semester commitment (fall and spring).

*Study Abroad, Internships, and Graduation are exceptions. Please contact the BUMP Advisor if you would like to participate, but cannot fulfill the role both semesters.

Mentor Mindset

Unlike other CLP Programs or student organizations, the main development and heart of the program occurs as a mentor and mentee pair outside of structured meetings, trainings, and events. Therefore, it is important to be able to effectively manage your time and make your BUMP mentee a priority.

  • Meet with your mentee approx. once per week.
  • The more you put into this experience, the more you will benefit, learn, and help your mentee grow.

Mandatory Events

All meetings are held from 6:00-7:30 PM unless otherwise noted.
