DNS Mentorship Program - Mentor Application

The Department of Nutritional Sciences Mentorship Program is a fantastic way for Nutritional Sciences students to connect with alumni in one-on-one conversations. For students, this is an opportunity to receive advice and insight into the field of nutritional sciences and grow a professional network.  For alumni, this is an opportunity to support student success.

Above and beyond specializations, the mentorship program helps students build a meaningful professional relationship with an experienced professional.

The Alumni Mentorship Program runs through the academic year (September to April). Once matched, alumni mentors and student mentees must meet a minimum of 2-3 times during the academic year. If schedules allow, additional meetings are encouraged.

Please read the program guidelines and complete the form below to volunteer to be an alumni mentor. 

Contact Sara Franca at sara.franca@utoronto.ca or (647) 998-5733 with any questions.

The DNS Mentorship Program is sponsored by University of Toronto Affinity Partner, Manulife.
