The CAES mentor program is a collaboration between the CAES Alumni Association and the Office of Academic Affairs. The purpose of this program is to allow students to explore possible career opportunities, network with agricultural industry professionals, and strengthen their professional skills to become prepared to enter the workforce. Applications will be taken from students and industry supporters of CAES and will be matched based on a variety of factors such as, line of work, goals/objectives, and communication preference. Topics will be sent to mentors and mentees each month to discuss and cover. The experience will also include two in-person meetings and a job shadow day during the school year.
