Culture Walks Program

The Culture Walks Program is a mentorship program connecting students who have in-depth international experience with students who are embarking on internships abroad. As a Culture Walks Mentor, you will have the opportunity to share your experience living abroad with fellow students, develop your leadership skills, enhance your communication skills, and build your resume!

This is a great opportunity to develop your leadership experience!

  • Open to undergraduate and graduate students with experience living abroad
  • Minimum of 2nd year standing

The 2018-2019 Culture Walks Mentor application period will open in fall 2018. Check back soon for updates!
