Mentor and Evaluator Roles

The College is dedicated to the pursuit of lifelong learning, and as such, appreciates the commitment of our group of volunteer Fellows who take the time to assist the candidate with the development and success of their leadership project. The Fellowship Program has a two-year timeframe for completion. Once the applicant’s application is approved by Fellows Council, a mentor is appointed to the candidate to help the candidate with the Fellowship Program process as well as all components of the program.
