Offer insight, inspire excellence, build relationships, stay connected and enjoy a rewarding volunteer experience!

The ACPHS Alumni-Student Mentoring Program brings together alumni mentors who can share their expertise and experience to help guide students as they embark on their careers in both pharmacy and the health sciences.

The Alumni Council, Institutional Advancement and Career Services invite all students and interested alumni to join. Matching mentors to mentees will be based upon areas of study and professional experiences/interests.

If you would like to be part of this program and mentor a current student, please complete the online Alumni-Student Mentor Form and we will reach out to you with your match. Thank you in advance for your participation!
