Each year, Nancy Kassop, SUNY New Paltz Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, and Tonda Highley, Associate Dean/Director of the SUNY New Paltz Career Resource Center, have brought dozens of students majoring in political science/international relations to Washington D.C. to gather with government officials and other political and policy professionals, and to network with fellow SUNY New Paltz alumni.

Based on the success of these visits, we are opening this mentoring event to alumni of all disciplines. Experienced alumni are encouraged to meet and mingle with current students and recent graduates living and working in the D.C. area, who would welcome career advice, mentorship, and wisdom, as they build their professional lives.

"The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image,
but giving them the opportunity to create themselves."
- Steven Spielberg
