The mission of the Faculty Mentor Program is to encourage faculty-student interaction outside-the-classroom through mentoring relationships that improve academic achievement, increase student retention rates, and improve the graduation rates of educationally disadvantaged students.
The Faculty Mentor Program is for undergraduate students who are first generation college students.
