Academic Mentor Program

The Academic Mentor Program is designed for first year students on academic probation to work with trained upper-class student academic mentors. Mentors will work to identify the needs of each mentee and develop a success plan accordingly. Some topics students may work on:

    • Learning new study skills to positively change their study behavior
    • Recognizing their learning styles
    • Improving time management skills
    • Setting academic and personal goals

Mentors will support, coach, and advise the mentee with any useful information needed to succeed academically. Contact with mentors will occur one on one, in small groups, via email, and/or over the phone.
