Aero Assist is in charge of the mentorship program for new and incoming graduate students in the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The mentorship programs includes events for new graduate students to meet each other, interact with their mentors and become integrated into the graduate program.
If you would like to become involved in the mentorship program as a mentor, or if you are a new or incoming graduate student and would like to participate in the mentorship program, please contact our Mentorship Program Chair, Diane Sorenson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
