HHS Success Mentors Program

The HHS Mentor/Mentee Program is an intentionally structured, formal mentoring program for undergraduate mentors and mentees. Participants gain knowledge, skills, and abilities essential to their academic, personal, and professional success. Sophomore, junior, and senior mentors provide academic support, psychological and emotional support, goal-setting and career support, and role modeling to first-year student mentees.

Program Structure

Each mentee is assigned a mentor. Mentees and mentors are matched by academic unit, if possible.

Mentors and Mentees participate in:

  • Biweekly Mentor/Mentee Group Activities
  • Biweekly One-on-One Mentoring – each Mentor/Mentee pair is responsible for their one-one-one mentoring relationship

Activities

Mentors and mentees meet one-one-one throughout the year. Some things that mentor/mentee pairs choose to do are:

  • Get together for a meal or coffee
  • Work out at the Co-REC
  • Attend student organization meetings and events
  • Go bowling
  • Study together

Group activities for mentors and mentees are held every other week and include:

  • Goal-setting
  • Campus Tours
  • Career Development Workshop
  • Ice Cream Social
  • Wellness Program
  • Community Service 
  • Formal Dinner with Faculty
