In this series, we have featured the new Columbia mentorship program that connects recent alumni with industry professionals. Over fifty pairs of mentors and graduating students were matched and more will be paired in the coming months. As this series comes to a close, we are taking it back to the beginning in conversation with Dean's Council Chair and one of our oldest and most prominent and steadfast mentors, Katharina Otto-Bernstein '92 SOA ('86 CC). Otto-Bernstein helped to create the mentorship network that has been met with so much enthusiasm and support today, and she spearheads a thesis mentorship program. She is a pillar in the Film community whose support has changed the lives of many.
