Mustang Mentoring Program
What is Mustang Mentoring?
Mustang Mentoring is a program that provides Cal Poly students, alumni and industry leaders with the opportunity to meet and network along with the tools to develop long-term mentoring relationships. The program was developed in 2009 as Mustang Mentoring Day, a one-day, on campus event inviting alumni and students to begin building mentoring relationships.
