Tai Verbrugge Mike Baki Summit MentoringTai Verbrugge '19 discusses sustainability careers with Mike Baki '84

Mentoring is a core component of the Stewardship and Sustainability Network's goals and activities. Each year, we match every senior in the Sustainability Minor with an alum of their choice, helping students to discern their areas of interest within the diverse field of sustainability and to learn from the broad array of professional and personal experiences our alumni have generously shared. Please contact us if you would like to be a mentor to an undergraduate studying sustainability!

Alumni also support our students in pursuing sustainability careers by sharing internship opportunities at their companies or organizations, allowing students to shadow them at work, or even hosting an on-site visit from our Environmental Career Trek. If any of these sound interesting to you, please be in touch.

Our mentoring program has benefited from the launch of IrishCompass, a new online Notre Dame community that allows students to find and connect with alumni directly. IrishCompass is the result of a collaboration between Notre Dame's Career Center and Alumni Association.  We encourage all of our network members to join IrishCompass using these 5 easy steps:

  1. Click Join Our Community and then Email, using your or other preferred email address.
  2. Establish your profile with some basic information about your work and educational background, or import from LinkedIn or Facebook.
  3. Under Industry Groups, please select Energy/Environmental.
  4. Under Field of Specialty, please select Sustainability.
  5. Select any other relevant categories that describe you, decide how often you want to be contacted by students, and you're done!
