Each mentor program is designed to provide Fisher students with opportunities to both learn from professionals, as well as give back to the Fisher community. All mentoring programs are opportunities to engage and enlighten undergraduate students from the perspective of someone with a greater understanding of Fisher and with more experience as a business student and professional.

Mentor Opportunities

  • Fisher Peer Mentor Program

    In conjunction with the Fisher Citizenship Program, the Fisher Peer Mentor Program (FPMP) matches first-year students with an upper-class Fisher volunteer mentor. Throughout the academic year, students meet during a kick-off and participate in mentor development touch point meetings. 

    Upper-class mentors participate in a mentor training workshop prior to engaging their mentee. 

  • Fisher Alumni Undergraduate Mentor Program

    The Fisher Alumni Undergraduate Mentor Program (AUMP) pairs sophomore/ junior Fisher undergraduate students with Fisher alumni and friends of the College via an application process. These pairs connect on a weekly/monthly basis either in person or virtually if the mentor is outside of Central Ohio.

    Participants are invited to a welcome event and subsequent AUMP events such as Ohio State hockey game, professional development round table, and behind the scenes tour of Ohio Stadium.
