Academic Mentoring is a relationship between mentors and students. The mentor has more experience than the student and can provide support and knowledge to help the student be successful.
Academic Mentors are both faculty and experienced students who have overcome many things that other students struggle with today. Whether it is being new to a school, dealing with stress before upcoming exams, learning how to read and study effectively, or being overwhelmed by the number of commitments, we have experienced and overcome the same challenges. Academic Mentors are equipped with experiences, wisdom, and advice from others who have mentored us, as well as the resources and professional training provided by CASAS (College of Applied Studies &Academic Success). We are prepared and willing to show you how to take the next step in your personal and academic goals, by providing clarity in thought, new perspectives in conversations, and valuable resources to equip you. We walk alongside and encourage you toward success both personally and academically.

Academic mentoring also helps students build social-emotional skills and empowers them to gain skills and knowledge to take the next steps toward success.
