Industry Mentors

Our sports and outdoor product industry connections mean each step of our students' journeys is rich with meaningful and vibrant opportunities.

It starts with each student being assigned their own industry mentor. Mentors are introduced to students during the first term to start building an advisory relationship. Mentors are available to ensure students feel supported in their questions about the industry and how to best reach their career goals.

Industry Internships

To further enhance industry engagement, students in the Portland-based onsite program complete an internship that immerses them in a sports or outdoor product company in the United States or abroad.
