Moody Mentor Program

What is the Moody Mentor Program?

The Moody Mentor Program will foster a sense of belonging to and increase community within the Moody College of Communication. The mentoring relationship will provide support and encouragement during the critical transition to life at The University of Texas at Austin. Mentees will feel connected to the college and to the university through engagement with their mentor and associated programming.
