Real Experience and Leadership Mentoring (REALM)


REALM (Real Experience and Leadership Mentoring) is a full-day leadership shadowing for UB students who are interested in learning about leadership in the context of a professional setting.

Successful applicants will be paired with a professional either in the Buffalo/Niagara region or New York City metropolitan area (depending on which program the student applies) and will shadow that professional for the day and will observe what leadership qualities and skills have made that person successful.

This is an opportunity for students to network and develop a mentoring relationship with a professional in their major or area of career interest.
