About U Mentor

"U" Mentor is a program that aims to promote student success through the avenue of mentorship. Once matched, students are able to actively communicate with their mentors and receive assistance with academic advising, career advising, and overall achievement of success. Both mentors and mentees are required to complete a Development Plan together in order to ensure students and staff/faculty experience a fulfilling mentorship relationship.

Ultimately, the program helps to build connection, community and creates an atmosphere of belonging and self-directedness through the resources the mentoring relationship provides.
