CAH Alumni Mentorship Program
Established by the CAH Alumni Chapter and launching fall 2018, the CAH Alumni Mentorship Program plans to foster meaningful relationships between CAH alumni and current students. The program provides alumni with the opportunity to give back to their alma mater, expand their network and enhance their resume, while supporting the educational and professional development and experience of current CAH students. The program is specifically designed and coordinated by the CAH Alumni Chapter Board of volunteers. It is our belief that student enthusiasm and alumni support are crucial to the continued success and advancement of this mentorship program.
