Alumni Connector: Mentorship Program

We have revamped our mentoring program and are pleased to launch the Alumni Connector: Mentorship Program in October. This year we are opening the program to all School of Nursing students, regardless of year or program. We’re looking for alumni who would like to volunteer their time and knowledge to guide future nursing professionals. You do not need to live in the Richmond area to participate. Learn more about the program and apply to become a mentor this academic year. Application deadline is Monday, Sept. 23.

Questions? Contact Amber Yancey (B.S.’07/H&S), alumni relations and stewardship specialist, at or (804) 828-2993.
