The Circle of Mentorship

Bruce Feathers '75, one of the original co-chairs of MCAN, coined the phrase "Circle of Mentorship" to describe all the ways that multicultural alumni could help each other and the College. The points on the circle begin with admissions, an area in which alumni can be critically helpful in encouraging promising students to attend Carleton, moving around the circle, alumni can serve as mentors to students at Carleton (student life), encourage people of color to consider working at Carleton (faculty and staff recruitment), act as career mentors to students and fellow alumni (careers), raise funds to support the College and participate in reunions. The circle is closed when the student who chose Carleton because of the interest and encouragement of an alum becomes a volunteer also.
