MENTORSHIP

Mentoring is at the heart of the CAPS experience. The level of involvement can vary depending on student needs and mentor availability.

We do not “grade” the mentoring process, but we do ask that students set up at least one initial face-to-face meeting with a mentor early in the semester, and a minimum of one more face-to-face meeting by the last month of the term. It is certainly our hope that students will take full advantage of a mentor’s willingness to share their wisdom and time, and be able to meet or communicate by email more frequently.

The students who have benefited the most from your mentoring relationship are the ones who meet regularly with mentors and ask questions regarding their business and project plans, career explorations, and other life choices they are making right now.

PARTNERSHIP

Business partners are at the heart of the CAPS program. The program features problem-based learning brought in by business partners.

There is no minimum threshold of involvement and finding the right fit for each business partner is a priority.

Mentors and guest speakers are always in demand as well as project and internship opportunities.
