Ram Alumni Mentoring Program (RAMP)

The Ram Alumni Mentoring Program (RAMP) connects alumni and students in mutually rewarding, 6-month mentoring relationships that foster the personal, educational, and career success of students and allow alumni to meaningfully engage with Suffolk.

The Career Development Center, Office of Alumni Engagement, College of Arts & Sciences Alumni Board, Sawyer Business School Alumni Board, GOLD Council, and Women in Leadership Network have joined forces to provide this platform to enhance students’ networking and professional opportunities.

Become a RAMP Mentor

Whether you hold a Suffolk bachelor’s or master’s degree (or both!) from the College or Business School, we encourage you to join.

  • Read the Mentor Guide [PDF] for more details.
  • Complete this short application.
  • You will receive your mentee match on November 1 by email.
  • Your mentoring partnership will last from November 1 to May 1.*

*Please note: We’ll do our best to match you with a student whose interests closely align with your background, but we appreciate your flexibility and openness regarding your assigned mentee. Also, please be aware that, due to a variety of factors, a match is not guaranteed.

Alumni Information Sessions

We offer optional individual RAMP information sessions to alumni. If you’re interested, please contact Joanna Lazarek in the Career Development Center.
