Carleton University’s History Mentor Network

Welcome to the website of Carleton University’s History Department Mentorship Network!

This is a network that is intended especially for undergraduate history majors who are endeavouring to chart their own futures, while making connections with others who’ve used their training in history to pursue diverse and rewarding careers.

Review the various profiles on this website to get a sense of what is possible. Does anyone strike you in particular or make you curious about how they got to where they are now? Do you have a desire to build a relationship with someone who has travelled a career path that you hope to follow? Each of these individuals have agreed to be part of this mentorship network and would love to hear from you. If you would like to be in contact with one of our mentors then please click here.

If you would like to have an opportunity to meet these people in person, we also hold an annual event called “Beyond the Academy: CU History Mentorship and Networking Night”. Each year, four individuals come to Carleton for an evening of networking and yummy food with students just like you! Stay tuned for details of the event we hold every fall.
