How many times do we have to meet?
Protégés and their mentors should meet in-person at least once a month. Additionally, students are encouraged to communicate with their mentors in between these meetings either through phone calls, emails, or other forms of communication.  
 
What if I cannot get in touch with my mentor? 
Keep in mind that your mentor could be traveling, have personal emergencies or just extremely busy, as they are executives. However, if your mentor consistently does not respond to any form of communication within a couple of weeks, please contact bmarange@uci.edu.
