Discover Alumni Engagement Opportunities

Alumni have countless ways to stay connected with the Stephen D. Cutler Center for Investments and Finance. The programs and engagement opportunities below give you a brief overview of how you can help current students with your expertise and guidance along their career journeys. If you want to learn more about one or more of these opportunities, please email Farrah Narkiewicz, Marketing & Events Manager. 

Mentor Program

The Cutler Center mentor program matches undergraduate and graduate students with industry professionals from across the world of finance. Mentors are paired with a student majoring in finance to enhance the student’s network, help develop their career path, and provide advice, guidance, and feedback. Applications for the 2024-25 academic year are open and due by COB Wednesday, September 18, 2024.

The Cutler Center mentor program runs from October to May, and mentors commit to a minimum of six hours with their mentee during these eight months. To participate, potential mentors and mentees must complete their respective application forms to help with the matching process.

Once mentors and mentees have been matched, each pair will work together to schedule times to meet throughout the program’s duration. Participants decide on the communication method(s) best suited for them (email, phone, in-person meetings, Zoom, etc.). To help set the expectations for the relationship, the Cutler Center will provide training materials to help engage mentors and mentees. Participants may also choose to attend various events and programs the Cutler Center hosts.
