The HHS Mentor Program matches first-year students in the College of Health and Human Sciences with an upper-class mentor who will provide ongoing support and guidance throughout the academic year. First-year students who join the HHS Mentor Program can enhance their mentoring experience by joining the HHS Mentee Residential Community. Students will participate in the HHS Mentor Program, gaining support and guidance from a peer mentor, while engaging in activities with other Mentees and Mentors and living near other Mentees.

The HHS Mentor Program is an intentionally structured, formal mentoring program for undergraduate students in the College of Health and Human Sciences. 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.  For more information about the program, please visit the program website.
