Mentorship is valuable at all stages of your career, and it doesn’t have to look like the typical formal “mentor and protégé” model.

We like to think about mentorship as encompassing a wide range of relationships, interactions, and networks. We encourage you to do some research and find a mentorship model (or a bunch of models) that resonate with you.

There isn’t much in the way of formal mentoring at Waterloo, but here’s what we know—and some advice on building your own network.

Thank you to Jo Atlee, Monica Vesely, and Sheila Ager for their contributions to this page.
