Giving Alumni more than a degree, but a lifelong social and professional network.

Mentorship Hub

Some lessons cannot be taught in a classroom but only through professional and real-world experiences. The Mentorship Hub bridges that gap by connecting students and young graduates with experienced alumni and members of the AAU community who can share the challenges, successes, and crossroads they faced on their career paths, and offer their advice in this ever-diversifying career world.

View our current list of mentors on AAUNET with your aauni.edu email.
