Vocation Inspired Alumni (VIA) Mentoring Program

Vocation-Inspired Alumni Mentoring - or VIA Mentoring - is a program that connects Luther students and alumni in conversations about ways to learn actively, live purposefully, and lead courageously at Luther College and beyond.

Current students and alumni are connected one-on-one to engage in conversation for one academic year, connecting in a meaningful way at least once a month. Matches are made based on a variety of criteria, but this program intentionally aims to make connections that go beyond a student's intended career path.

What are the goals of VIA Mentoring?

  • To provide students with a lived-example of the role a Luther education can play in building a purposeful life for oneself.
  • To give current Luther students another platform and relationship for exploring and discerning their vocations.
  • To cultivate student-alumni relationships, where alumni can serve as another sounding board and member of students’ Luther community of support.
  • To connect alumni to current students, strengthening their connection to campus and overall engagement with the Luther community.

Participation in the program is voluntary for both alumni mentors and student mentees. Matches are made based upon student interest and best match potential. Fill out the form below to express your interest in the program, as you may be an interested student's mentor match!
