Aztec Mentor Program logo

The Aztec Mentor Program (AMP) was launched in Fall 2013 with the support of the Aztec Parents Fund. The program is open to eligible juniors, seniors and graduate students in all majors. AMP is a partnership between SDSU Career Services and the Office of Alumni Engagement. It is aligned with SDSU's strategic plan "Building on Excellence" and its "Leadership Starts Here" commitments.

AMP requires an 8- to 12-hour time commitment by mentors and students over the course of a semester.The program runs during the Fall and Spring semester.

The Aztec Mentor Program has grown from 345 mentor/mentee matches in 2013 - 2014  to over 800 matches in 2014 - 2015. The goal for 2015-2016 is 1000 matches so we can continue to connect and engage more student and mentor participation.

AMP mentoring is the development of a voluntary, one-on-one relationship between a student (mentee) and an SDSU alumnus or professional (mentor). The objective is to develop a close-knit, long-term relationship that will cover many aspects of career and professional development.

Mentees and mentors should expect to:

  • Share experiences, resources, and answer career-related questions.

  • Discuss the job market and provide advice regarding how to find a job in a related field.

  • Attend an office or staff meeting, an appointment with a client, and/or attend a professional association meeting (if possible).

  • Attend the Networking event and any scheduled AMP events (if local).

  • Participate in a shared tour of an organization or job shadow experience (if possible).
