Alumni Mentor Program

Are you looking for a way to continue supporting your university? Do you want to make a positive impact in the lives of your fellow Coyotes? Then the all new CSUSB Alumni Mentor Program (powered by the Mentor Collective) is just for you!

Alumni Relations is proud to announce the launch of our new CSUSB AMP. Designed with both students and alumni in mind, the AMP is an amazing opportunity to build connections within our Coyote family. You will have the opportunity to connect with current students who are looking to build their personal and professional networks.

The time commitment will vary depending on how you chose to participate; however, the expectation is less than 1 hour each week.

What are other mentees saying about the experience?

  • “Chris has helped me understand that I am not lost, I am just figuring it out and that it is ok. He has been very welcoming and considerate and has even given me a few different suggestions on scholarship opportunities and other areas in my life. I look forward to building this relationship and taking all that I can from it.”  – Daniel Martinez
  • “So far I am very pleased with the program. I feel that I have been matched with a mentor that has already achieved or is working to achieve the same goals as me. I feel that we are very similar and can't wait to talk more about your college experiences.” – Anna Bailey
