To broaden the horizon of MIS
students by enhancing their exposure to the IS industry and expanding
their opportunities for career development and professional networking
through interaction with IS practitioners.
The program also provides a mechanism that allows UMSL
alumni practitioners the opportunity to contribute to the University and
the community by sharing their experiences and working knowledge with
future MIS graduates.
About the MIS Mentoring Program
in Spring 1994 by Michael Aufdembrink (MS in MIS, 1991), The MIS Mentoring
Program exists to add value to the MIS students at UM-St. Louis by enhancing
their industry perspectives and extending their professional network.
To view a summary of Mike's original vision for the program, please read
Knocking .... Thanks for Opening the Door!
The program is run by a body of (elected) student officers, a faculty advisor with
the guidance of an Advisory Board composed
of MIS alumni. Each UM-St. Louis MIS student who so requests will have access to a list of mentors in the program.
(They can choose a mentor that matches their technical/professional interests.) You can find a listing of proteges already enrolled in the program on-line.
