Alumni Visiting Mentors


Visiting Mentors

Each year, a cohort of Yale alumni across different industries devote time to meet with students and join events on campus.

Since its launch in the spring of 2018, the Yale Center for Business and Environment has made over 300 student connections to Yale alumni through our Alumni Visiting Mentor series. The series seeks to sponsor alumni back to campus as a resource for students.
