Ram Resources proposed the development of a mentoring program where VCU alumni would be marched with VCU student. With the use of a web based application process, the alumni would volunteer time to meet with a student in the same field of study. Targeted students would include those who are first generation college students, those who have finished their first year of study, and those with average grades. All departments can participate, and create a unique program for their students. In December, 2008, Mary Hermann presented the proposal to the school of business Alumni Board who is interested in implementing the program.
