Who Is An Academic Mentor?

Academic Mentors are accomplished students who serve as role models and represent an important source of information and guidance.

Academic Mentors take advantage of campus supports and help fellow students tap into these resources. Academic Mentors volunteer their time and are not tutors or Teaching Assistants.

To speak with the Academic Mentoring Coordinator about how to get involved, email the Academic Mentoring Coordinator.

One on One Mentoring

One on One Mentoring is offered for students who are looking for more individual or specific support. Please contact the Academic Mentoring Program Coordinator to be paired with an academic mentor.
