Diversity l Equity l Inclusion Initiative

Explore a career path. Get paired with an industry mentor.
Grow your network. Dive into a real world project.

This fall, 100 students on the University of Hartford campus will have the opportunity to be matched with a mentor in a field that interests them. Mentors will support the students in completing a real world project over the course of four weeks. There will be projects to choose from in the following areas: art, business, design, entrepreneurship, marketing, music and tech.

As a result of participating in the challenge, students will be more aware of the roles and career paths that exist. They will also have access to mentors who can help guide them through launching their career. Most excitingly, all projects will culminate into a portfolio piece that students can showcase when applying for jobs.

Attend the kickoff to learn more and get paired with a mentor.
