BECOMING A MENTOR FAQ
What is the MAISS Mentorship Program?
The MAISS Mentorship Program matches undergraduate students with upperclass BIM majors and business and ICS majors. The BIM community is smaller than most majors, so the MAISS Mentorship Program hopes to create a network of BIM majors, as well as students who have an interest in business and technology, who are devoted to guide each other academically, professionally, and socially. Each mentor is matched with one or two mentees, forging relationships throughout their term and sharing in fun, friendship, and support.
