iSchool Mentorship Program

Program Overview

The UCLA iSchool Mentorship program matches current iSchool students with professional mentors. Our mentor pool is composed of UCLA Library staff and UCLA iSchool alumni employed at a variety of institutions in Los Angeles and around the country. This program is jointly organized by the iSchool, Library, and Library and Information Studies Alumni Association (LISAA).

Timeline & Program Requirements

Mentorship matches are made for an academic year (fall through spring). We suggest meeting at least once per quarter, but there is no specific time commitment—each pair will decide on the frequency of communication and activities that are best for them. An orientation is offered for new participants each fall.
