LIM College Mentor Program

By becoming a mentor, you create a legacy that has a lasting impact on your mentees, the LIM College community and YOU.

As a Mentor, you will develop your own career possibilities, help other students achieve their potential, and assist in making LIM College reach new heights overall.

In every field the most influential and respected leaders are those who know how to guide and assist others—inspiring leaders who are role-models as well as successes. At LIM College we take special care to nurture such leaders, and becoming a Mentor is a step forward on that path.

If you have considered becoming a Mentor in the past, but not gotten around to it, now is the time. An increasing number of students each semester come to us to launch their industry and academic careers at LIM College.
