Leadership and Mentoring
Business students have many opportunities to participate in educational and experiential initiatives that challenge them to explore, strengthen, and elevate their character and leadership.
The Gramling Mentorship Program
The goal of the Gramling Mentorship Program is to create an experience where undergraduates and graduates learn how to value and engage in meaningful mentorship relationships. Students will learn the value of investing in others and how that can lead to lifelong partnerships, friendships, and successes. Every experience will be designed with intentionality to create strong mentors impacting the experience of others beyond graduation.
Undergraduate students in the Gramling Mentorship Program are paired with UConn School of Business graduate mentors based on their field/industry of interest. Undergraduate students earn academic credit for participation in the program.
"...As a mentor, Larry guides and advises with a respect that makes you believe in yourself... To know him is to become a better person.” Learn more about Dr. Larry Gramling, after whom this program is named.
