Spring 2018 - Mentorship Program Roles

The Excel Mentorship Program is designed to capitalize on student strengths to increase student leadership capacity, social fluency, and skills for adulthood. Students and mentors work together to achieve academic success, develop a social network, and establish healthy lifestyles. The Mentor Program is made up of students from all walks of life, areas of study, and interests. 

Quote from a Coach:

"My experience has really become that of a true friendship. I have learned way more from her than I could ever teach her. She has become so much more confident in herself and her abilities."


Students work with 1:1 coaches to advance their social and personal development goals. In addition, coaches help students manage their schedules, emails, and integrate into campus life.
