Mentoring & Advisement Program for Students

Faculty advisors, known as “mentors,” meet with their assigned students on a regular basis. Their role is to assist and encourage students in:

  • overcoming academic challenges
  • developing social and self-responsibility
  • setting and achieving professional goals

The registrar assigns a faculty mentor to all entering students. New students meet their faculty mentors during New Student Orientation.
