MRU launches Indigenous Mentorship program


Mount Royal University recently launched an Indigenous Mentorship program to help Indigenous students connect with industry professionals. The program was developed in response to the need for career services and opportunities that are specifically tailored to Indigenous students. The mentors for the program include both Indigenous and non-Indigenous professionals, all of whom are connected to Indigenous communities in some way. “Career mentorship is powerful because [the students] can understand the journey of their mentor and learn more about the industry,” explained MRU Career Services Director Sarah Imran.
