Lyman Briggs College Mentorship Fund

Your gift to the Lyman Briggs College Mentorship Fund supports Briggs Connect, a virtual hub that connects Briggsies with alumni and their peers. During the pandemic, we learned that the right technology is essential to make mentoring happen. Our preferred platform will no longer be funded centrally due to unexpected budget cuts. On Giving Tuesday in November, we raised nearly $5,000, which covers two years of the program! With your help, we can raise an additional $2,500 to keep the platform going for a third year.

Why Mentorship?

The past few years have been especially challenging for Lyman Briggs students. They've faced increased job uncertainty, few in-person job shadowing opportunities, limited research positions, and canceled internships. Mentoring is now more important than ever. That's why we launched Briggs Connect. Alumni and students have stepped up to support each other in meaningful ways during the pandemic, a practice we want to continue.

 

“Something that happens, particularly in small colleges, is that we’re forced to rely on each other a little bit more, which makes the mentorship programs in Briggs so exciting. We’re creating opportunities and opening doors for our students, and that’s what really is important to remember at the end of the day.” — Krysta Coleman, Career Services Consultant

 

The mentorship that current and former Briggsies provide to one another takes place in a variety of settings: during the transition to college, navigating tough times in the classroom, and advising on post-graduation plans. Briggs Connect is the virtual platform that holds these relationships together.

Support the Briggs Mentorship Fund

Help us continue bringing Briggsies together. Your gift will ensure virtual mentoring continues at Lyman Briggs College.
