  • offer resources regarding learning strategies,
  • build mentoring relationships with class members, and
  • refer students to other campus services as appropriate.

Academic mentors also benefit from the chance to:

  • develop a collaborative relationship with a faculty member,
  • encourage students in their learning and academic success,
  • hone their own interpersonal, academic, leadership, and teaching skills, and
  • receive 4000 level academic credit toward graduation.

Academic mentor positions for each quarter are filled on a rolling basis, so indicating interest early increases the possibility of participation.The position descriptions below outline academic mentor qualifications, typical responsibilities, and details regarding academic credit.
