Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program is designed to support students as they become self-motivated, independent learners and citizens.  This is achieved through a variety of academic, social and personal development strategies provided by a professional Academic Mentor.

Students meet one on one with Mentors multiple times each week, developing strong relationships and a safe place to bring concerns.  Mentors provide hands-on support for students in the areas of:

  • Time Management
  • Organization
  • Prioritization and Goal Setting
  • Study Skills
  • Transition issues
  • Independent Learners and Advocates.

Mentors promote a proactive, collaborative approach to student success.  They are the central facilitator for student issues and communicate with faculty and families.  Mentors provide direct support as well as connecting students to existing resources within the College to encourage optimal academic and personal achievement.

Students enrolled in the Mentoring Program have a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences.  Many students have learning styles which respond well to the structure and support Mentors can provide.  Others thrive with the personal attention, utilizing the resource to gain confidence and independence in a new environment.   Many find the connection with a Mentor valuable when juggling social involvement with academic expectations, especially during the first year.

Enrollment in the program is voluntary and requires an additional fee.  For additional information, please contact Beth Dowling at edowling@nec.edu or by phone at 603-428-2247.
