Mission Statement

The Gaucho Mentor Connection program provides participants the opportunity for professional development, networking, and skill acquisition through peer-to-peer mentorship.

This program will encourage an atmosphere conducive to learning and exploring new ideas, in which participants develop untapped potential, to the benefit of the individuals and the campus as a whole. The mentorship program empowers staff to be active contributors to UCSB’s culture of interdisciplinary collaboration that is responsive to the needs of our diverse and global society.
