This facilitated discussion will bring students, faculty, and alumni together to envision how the humanities can respond to and thrive in the Trump Era. Pizza will be provided, courtesy of the CHID Alumni Advisory Board.

* "What we've envisioned with the mentorship program is to connect CHID alumni with recent grads or current undergrads. We're working on a questionnaire that both mentors and mentees will fill out, and using that information we'll match people with similar interests. I will send an email introduction to you and your mentee, and from there we step back, and your mentor/mentee relationship starts. 

As a mentor, your specific role will answer questions your mentee might have via email, or over coffee if you are able to meet in person. We are also in the process of organizing future alumni events like happy hours, and meet-ups that would be great places to meet your mentee. You are welcomed to meet/communicate with your mentee as little or as much as you two find appropriate, our goal is simply to connect people."
