Graduate Students and Mentors Connect at Senior Fellows Breakfast
UCLA Luskin graduate students connected with prominent community, government and business leaders at the 2022 Senior Fellows Breakfast at the UCLA Faculty Club. As the Luskin School’s premier mentoring and networking initiative, the Senior Fellows Program matches master’s students in public policy, social welfare and urban planning with mentors who offer career guidance and leadership development. During the Oct. 26 breakfast, two speakers offered advice on how to make the most of the opportunity: mentor Daniel Lee MSW ’15, mayor of Culver City, and MPP student Alicia Nyein, who is entering her second year in the program. Guests also viewed a video remembering VC Powe, a UCLA Luskin staff member and champion of the Senior Fellows Program for many years until her death in 2020. Mentors and their students then had an opportunity to become better acquainted as they embarked on a yearlong partnership focused on engagement in the public service arena.
