Coaching and Mentoring

The Institute knows the value of finding coaches and mentors to support you with your academic studies and co-curricular work. If you are seeking connections to faculty and researchers related to a particular academic topic, we encourage you to learn more about the work of our Faculty Affiliates, the work we are doing on three Impact Goals and the Institute’s many “Knowledge Initiatives”.

Students with an idea for a project that has the potential for addressing a social or environmental issue can sign up for free coaching through Acara Impact Studios. Impact Studios coaches are UMN faculty, staff, librarians, and incredible community leaders.
