Mentor program

Student To Alumni Mentoring Program (STAMP)

The goals of this new program are to prepare KU geology students for employment and employment opportunities in their field and to connect KU geology alumni with KU students and the Geology Department. The idea for this program was developed by the Geology Associates Advisory Board, spearheaded by GAAB member Ron Wallace and George Stanley along with other board members and key KU Geology faculty and student representative, Steve Schurger.

As part of the Student-Alumni relations we are establishing information on individual mentors to connect KU geology students with potential KU alumni mentors. The whole program is voluntary but we strongly encourage everyone to participate as it can be rewarding with benefits to both students and alums. We also are working to establish a KU Geology Student-Alumni lecture program to get potential mentors on the KU campus to lecture and interact with students.

Please email the Geology Dept if you're interested in participating as a student or mentor.
