Mentor Opportunities

mentor opportunities

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 engage and enlighten undergraduate students from the perspective of someone with an understanding of Fisher and with more experience as a business student or working professional.

Mentor Opportunities

  • Open/Close Fisher Peer Mentor Program

    In conjunction with the Fisher Citizenship Program, the Fisher Peer Mentor Program (FPMP) matches first-year students with an upper-level Fisher volunteer mentor. Throughout the academic year, students meet during a kick-off and can participate in monthly events.

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

    Incoming Fisher students receive sign-up information during Orientation and via email. 

  • Open/Close 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 monthly basis either in person or virtually if the mentor is outside of Central Ohio. The program occurs from August through April with guided goal setting and check points throughout the academic year.

    Participants are invited to a welcome event and subsequent AUMP events such as networking etiquette, an Ohio State hockey game, and a behind the scenes tour of Ohio Stadium.

    Rising sophomore and junior students for 2022-2023: Applications open in Spring 2022.
