Mentorship Program 2014-2015

The Mentorship Program is a leadership development program on campus composed of a diverse group of students who are self-motivated, diligent and academically focused. Mentors are dynamic students who are responsible for facilitating the growth and progression of their Mentees on a social, academic and transitional level. Mentors are also encouraged to assist the Mentees they are assigned to with specific issues revolving around life on campus. Mentors also act as role models through example and provide support to student resources for their Mentees.

Mentors are responsible for providing out-of-classroom learning experiences to their Mentees and support various campus activities that are executed and administered by the Office of Student Activities and Resource Center and partner offices within the institution. Additionally, Mentors are responsible for heightening the awareness of the community on various areas related to academic success, community development, multiculturalism, health and wellness, alumni relations and career development.
