The Mentorship Program connects Revers Student Fellows with successful energy industry leaders. The objective of this program is to cultivate a strong network and community of Tuck “energy” alumni. This program furthers the Mission and Vision of the Revers Center for Energy by facilitating a transfer of knowledge, wisdom, resources, and life experiences. The program is designed to create lasting, meaningful mentorship relationships through two-way dialogue that extends far beyond the duration of the program.
