Careers: “The Diplomacy Initiative: Meet the Mentors” (virtual)
January 27, 2022 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The American College of National Security Leaders (ACNSL) and the Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs at UNC-Chapel Hill are piloting a program to enable undergraduate and graduate students to explore careers in national security and related fields.
In Meet the Mentors, five ACNSL mentors will introduce themselves and describe their diverse career backgrounds. Introductions will be followed by breakout sessions in which students can chat with each mentor. Meet the Mentors is a great opportunity for students to find a mentor (or mentors) to meet with throughout the semester during the mentors’ office hours.
There will be two virtual Meet the Mentors sessions that will kick off the program and serve as an opportunity to introduce the mentors to interested students.
- Thursday, January 27 | 2-3 p.m.
- Friday, January 28 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m.
