  • Be an Evans School Mentor - This program led by Evans School Career Development pairs second year Evans students with alumni mentors, both locally and remotely, for an active mentoring relationship from January through May of their final year at Evans. The goal of this program is to connect current students with alumni who can provide professional and personal development, support and encouragement for these future public service leaders. As a mentor, you have the opportunity to guide an Evans School student as they navigate the job search, build a professional network, and finish graduate school. We ask that alumni mentors try to connect with their student (via phone, email, video, or in-person) 1-2 times per month throughout the duration program. If you are interested, please contact Career Development at evansjob@uw.edu to be added to an email list that will send announcements when official program recruitment begins in October each year.
