UNF Mentoring Opportunities for students

Here at UNF we believe each student should have a chance to connect with a mentor. Check out the many options we have below!



Coggin Executive Mentors

Description: This program is designed to enhance the classroom experience by linking students with leading executives for one-on-one mentoring. Mentors share career advice and valuable insight into the transition from college to work. Students build career networks and develop skills to become better professionals and leaders.

Coggin Peer to Career Mentors

Peer to Career (P2C) Mentors specialize in providing Coggin students with professional career services helping business students find and acquire great internships, work experience, and full-time jobs. Hand selected as Coggin’s most successful third and fourth year students, each mentor has completed at least one internship/work experience and desire to share their career experiences with you. Mentors have worked within high profile companies such as Citi, Crowley, SS&C Advent, FIS Global, UNF Office of Internal Audit, non-profits, and more.

Community Alliance for Student Success (CASS)

Community Alliance for Student Success, or CASS, was created to serve traditionally underrepresented students on campus. With CASS, students have a supportive student community on campus, build relationships with trusted and experienced minority mentors, including industry leaders and local business owners and can connect with the campus community and culture, and discuss personal experiences and current events in a safe and respectful environment
