ENGAGE MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

The ENGAGE Mentorship Program consists of two separate but intertwining components, the Peer Mentor Program and the Professional Mentor Program. The former recruits international students as mentees, while the latter recruits as its mentees continuing students who can most strongly benefit from additional institutional support.

The central theme of the Office of Student Engagement is our belief in providing students with excellent engagement opportunities that are student-focused, student-driven, and student-centered.  This program has been designated as the OSE’s signature programming contribution to improving the institution’s student success outcomes. The primary goal of the ENGAGE Mentorship Program is to provide each participant with the knowledge and ability to move forward successfully in his or her individual academic program and career.
