Mentor Program

 

The School of Biological Sciences Mentor Program gives an invaluable opportunity for our undergraduate students to enhance their understanding of various careers and, in the process, build a community of BioSci alumni and professionals that extends beyond the UC Irvine campus. Alumni and community professionals share their knowledge and experiences to provide students (mentees) with insight of the working world. Students have the ability to gain professional development and support networks for successful careers upon graduating with a Biological Sciences degree.

Students
