You can support our LAS students

Have you ever thought about mentoring a student? Research shows that mentors can play a significant role in a student’s success in college and after graduation.

In the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we are always in search of alumni to share their knowledge and experience and advise students. Mentoring helps students expand professional networks, learn new skills, and uncover internship and job opportunities.

If you do not have time to serve as a mentor, you can serve as a presenter or an evaluator at an LAS career development workshop. Workshop discussion topics include resume and cover letter writing, interviewing, workplace professionalism, and industry-specific topics.

For more information about these opportunities, contact Kim McDonough, director of alumni relations for the college, at or 515-294-7487.

As always, thank you for all you do to support the college, our faculty, and our students.
