Duration of the Program

Mentors will be paired with at least one mentee for the duration of one year based on major, hobbies, career, or shared cultural experiences. You will be expected to meet with your mentee(s) at least four (4) times throughout the academic year. We will have additional programming throughout the year that is not required but highly recommended. These events will be an opportunity to build community.


Mentors will attend a one day training seminar on effective strategies for mentoring. Mentors will also be supported throughout the academic year with a monthly newsletter from the First-Year Experience Office.
