Executive Mentors Scholars

The business community has long recognized the value of mentoring as a means of developing both its leaders and its future workforce. Business professionals who act as mentors and role models help students gain insights that allow these students to hone their skills in preparation for successful employment.

The Lerner College is leading the way with this unique educational resource through its Executive Mentors Scholars Program. This initiative establishes 1:1 mentor-student relationships in which the executive’s professional background is complementary to the student’s career objectives. For further information, contact Libby Cusack at lcusack@udel.edu or 302-831-2221.
