Mentor Programs

Connect with Mentors

Haslam Network

Haslam Network, a peer-to-peer mentor program, connects first-year students and juniors to help first-year students get started on the right path to success. Navigating the transition from high school to college can be tricky. First-year students gain independence and are making choices that create habits for success. Haslam Network connects first-year students with juniors who recently experienced this transition and created these success habits. Throughout the first year, students will meet with juniors to learn more about how they navigated change, approached the unique challenges of the fall and spring semester, engaged with college and university student organizations, explored potential majors and careers, and succeed in college-level coursework.

Haslam Network also connects participants with members of the college’s young alumni council throughout the fall and spring semester for personal and professional mentorship. These young alumni share stories and experiences from their college journey, what they do in industry, and talk about the importance of professional exploration and development.

Haslam Network is open to all first-year students and juniors in the Haslam College of Business. For more information about Haslam Network or to get involved, contact for more information. Enrollment in Haslam Network occurs during the fall semester but first-year students can enroll at any point during their first year. The application to participate is shared in Haslam Headlines during the fall semester. If you are looking to join outside of the application window, contact to get signed up!
