Dr. Jill Hough, SURTC director, launched a successful mentorship program with students from her public transportation class during the spring semester. Students were paired with an industry leader for eight weeks to discuss topics and learn from the mentors' experiences in the transportation industry. NDSU is the pilot university for the mentor program which may be replicated nationally. Hough developed the program in response to the call from industry professionals for better workforce development within higher education. More information can be found in the NDSU news release and the Spring 2011 Transit Lane Brief.
