In addition to our vibrant, active social life, we are proud to offer the support of Graduate Peer Mentors and a Graduate Transitions Mentor.

Graduate Peer Mentors

Graduate Peer Mentors organize various activities and workshops, and host weekly coffee hours to help build a community of support among graduate students in the Department.

Graduate Transitions Mentor

The Graduate Transitions Series provides support for graduate students and alumni, and focuses on providing resources, strategies, and information about a range of career paths available to individuals with a graduate degree.

Alumni Mentors

Carleton’s Alumni Mentors program pairs motivated upper-year students, graduate students and recent graduates with an alumni mentor. Mentors are established professionals who want to help students and recent alumni build on their career aspirations and expand their professional networks. Meet virtually on a monthly basis from October 2021 – April 2022 with an alumnus who can help you explore different career paths, develop skills for the workplace and build your network.
