What makes our mentor program successful is its three tiered-system. Each mentee is paired with an upperclassman mentor and a WSU alumnus that is an established professional. This structure proves successful because it connects students to degree-specific leadership within the school and out in the work force. The on campus mentor focuses on professional development while the professional mentor informs students of industry demands. Combined, the two mentors provide resources to create competitive applicants for the state of Washington.

There are now approximately 25 additional alumni involved with the accounting program, and over 100 participants in the program’s first semester. This program cultivates leaders who are well polished, professional and will be immediate contributors in the workplace.
