Mentor Program Spring Update
We have met our capacity for the Mentor Program for spring quarter. Students can still fill out an application for the Mentor Program and save it for future use, but Banner will not allow them to submit their application at this time (an announcement to this effect has been posted on the application page in Banner). We will begin accepting new applications for summer quarter consideration after Finals are over, June 11.
Be reminded that the Mentor Program is available year round.
For students who remain in the Seattle area, signing up in the
Summer can be a good way to jump-start the mentor search process and
beat the rush of applications that come in during the school year.
For more information contact Mark Oppenlander, Director, Center for
Applied Learning, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
