Why IExcel Mentoring?

Get it off your mind

Whatever’s going on in your life today, share it with your mentor then hear their perspective.

Your aspirations realized

A spark or idea from talking with your mentor can sometimes be all it takes to get you going in the right direction.

Connections matter

Your mentor can become part of your growing professional network; a network that will become increasingly important as you get closer to graduation.
