Mentoring Programs

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program fosters individual relationships between students and faculty/staff, provides students with individualized resources to aid in college success, and increases the personal success of students through relationships with mentors.

A mentor can be any NSU faculty or staff member willing to commit to helping students adapt to academic expectations and the campus environment. Mentors should have institutional knowledge, personal skills, and the ability to guide students through their individual academic and professional development.

Benefits of Mentoring

  • Develop your skill as a communicator through improving your ability to express your expectations, goals, and concerns.
  • Increase academic achievement and possible higher GPA after one year of mentoring.
  • First year students who are mentored are significantly more likely to return to college for a second year.
  • Having a caring ear to hear your triumphs as well as your frustrations.
  • Developing a relationship with an advocate within NSU.
  • Getting honest feedback.
