Meet SLA Alumni

The program pairs each senior with an alumni mentor who provides one-on-one mentorship and support to discuss topics like personal and professional development, career exploration, work-life balance, and navigating financial planning while transitioning from a student to a working professional.

A key component of SLA is the invaluable support and guidance that students receive from alumni.  

Justin Wong was a Senior Leadership Academy mentor in 2018. We interviewed Justin, a 2011 graduate, who is a Finance Manager at PayPal,  to learn about his perspective as a SCU alumni and former SLA participant.  Here are his responses. 




Nicole Fite was a Senior Leadership Academy participant in 2018. We interviewed Nicole to learn how she has transferred skills and resources gained in SLA to her new role as a People Operations Coordinator at Invuity.  Here is what she had to say.
