Can I request to be paired with a mentee who is focused on my area of expertise (equities, fixed income, etc.)?

Yes, we will attempt to honor such requests

Can I serve as a mentor if I am not available during business hours since I can't get out of the office until 5 or 6pm?

Yes, your interactions with your mentee will be arranged by you at times convenient to your schedules

May I state a preference to be paired with a mentee who attends a particular university in this program (since it is my alma mater, or because I live or work near a campus or for other reasons)?

Yes, we will attempt to honor such requests

Can I volunteer to mentor more than one mentee?


I still have some questions. How can I contact someone who can answer them?

Please email and request that a Mentorship Committee member contact you directly via phone or email.
