Meet the ACE Master's Mentors

Master’s mentors are graduate students currently enrolled in a Loyola master's degree program through The Graduate School.  Master's mentors engage with junior and senior ACE Scholars focusing on graduate school preparation, career development, and life-after-Loyola enrichment workshops.  By offering undergraduates support and encouragement in preparation for their post-undergraduate needs, master's mentors strive to seamlessly usher ACE Scholars into their advanced degree programs and/or their professional careers.

Below is a brief introduction to our team of master's mentors.  If you are an ACE Scholar with questions about this service, please e-mail us at ace@luc.edu.
