MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

The student-led GVSU APICS and Grand Rapids Parent Chapters are seeking professional mentors for students enrolled in the GVSU Supply Chain and Operations Management Programs.  Unlike other mentorship programs, this initiative is intended to be student driven and informal.  There are no minimum levels of participation and no long-term time commitment.  Students are looking for professional contacts, advice and potential networking opportunities.   The mentor / mentee  relationship is informal without commitment to a specific process or outcome and allowed to evolve naturally.

This is a new initiative that will launch during the Fall 2019 semester.  We ask that you consider participating in this program by completing the mentor interest form and sending it to [email protected].  This data will be used to provide you with information as the program details develop as well as to group potential mentors and mentees.

If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected].
