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.

Interested in becoming a Mentor? Dates for the next application to be announced.
