The CSBA Mentor Association
Mission: Coach students to become ethical leaders of principle, to serve others and to pursue lofty personal goals in business, the military, the professions, nonprofit organizations and public service.
In 2002, several of the CSBA Faculty members realized that students were leaving the Citadel with degrees but many were unprepared for what lie ahead. Too many of the Citadel's, "best and brightest," were accepting positions far below their capabilities. What also came as a surprise to many of the faculty and staff was the fact that the opportunities for providing the tools the students needed were right here on campus. Thus, the Mentor Association began with the idea that each business major or MBA student could have a mentor who could help them navigate the process of finding a job, a place to live, planning their financial future and even teaching them socialization skills. In the past nine years, hundreds of students and mentors participated in the program, and both have reaped the benefits.
