How can I stay involved?

You can keep up to date of all the latest developments through events, newsletters and digital media. You can also get involved by contributing in many ways. You can sign up to become a mentor for a student or provide internships. Or make a resource (e.g. books, medical equipment’s etc) contribution which we can use in our programs.

  • Help students

Alumni can be very useful for students. You have developed knowledge and expertise which you can share with students. On the other hand, alumni can benefit from new visions which a student entails.

  • Donate

Alumni can be very useful for students and the university. As our graduates we hope you will contribute for the development of the university through donating your expertise, books, medical equipment and other resources.

  • Mentor Program

Alumni and Tracer studies and Career Center developed the Arba Minch University Career Mentor Program. This program gives students the chance to prepare themselves for the job market. A mentor acts as a role model. Students can ask questions about their study program or career path and learn from the experiences of the mentor.

As an alumnus of Arba Minch University you can sign up to become a mentor. You support the current generation of students, but also re-connect with the university and your education. Besides that, you control the amount of time you want to volunteer and how. You can contact each other in person, but also via mail, phone or Skype.

Interested in becoming a mentor? Contact Alumni and Tracer Studies Associate Registrar Office.

As a mentor you can have different roles:

Motivator: Motivate the student by expressing your confidence in the student’s capabilities. Encourage him/her to try new things and take on new challenges.

Resource: Teach the student how he/she can build a network of professional contacts and how to maintain these contacts. Introduce the student to new people, let them discover new places or give them new ideas.

Supporter: Encourage an open and honest dialogue. Listen and react to the needs of the student.

Coach: Contribute to the development of the student. And make sure he/she commits his-/herself to realistic and feasible goals.

  • Volunteer with us
