The Wildcat Mentor Society offers a unique experience that connects talented alumni with future leaders.
Through the program, mentors help mentees grow their professional development skills and play a part in their alumni network. The pairs establish strong relationships that extend beyond the program’s duration.
Kam Kindschi ’20 applied to the Wildcat Mentor Society hoping to meet professionals in the television industry. He was paired with Suzanne Rauscher ’93, a top-level producer of unscripted television programs.
Through the program, Rauscher helped Kindschi understand work forms, retirement plans and industry jargon, always just a call away. Rauscher's approach to mentorship gave Kindschi hands-on experience and boosted his confidence, preparing him for his life post-graduation. Today, Kindschi is an unscripted television producer who has worked on the sets of “Master Chef,” “Making the Cut” and more.
“I feel like she really set me up for success and being able to understand the path it takes,” Kindschi says.
