Mentors commit to working with students by making one-on-one relationships from their first year through graduation from college.
Mentors facilitate personal, academic, and career development by sharing knowledge, insight, and experience. Mentors are vital to student success and growth.
Close relationships with professors or other mentors can make a big difference for students. Having a mentor in college is linked to academic success and predicts well-being later in life.
