Help Make a Difference
The Texas Wesleyan Mentorship Program invites you to assist in ensuring that new college students are successful during their first year of college, which is crucial to retaining and developing students for a promising future.
The Texas Wesleyan Mentorship Program was established to directly address this issue. Through one-on-one relationship building and guidance from volunteer faculty, staff, and upperclassmen mentors, it is the program's goal that as many incoming students as possible make a smooth transition from high school to college. Such guidance provides a solid foundation for our students and affords the opportunity for them to be successful students throughout their entire college career.
In order to serve our freshmen as efficiently as possible, the Texas Wesleyan Mentorship Program endeavors to introduce freshmen to mentors with similar interests and backgrounds. When a match is made, the mentors agree to call their student to remind them of important dates and to encourage them to register early for classes. Also, mentors commit to having at least three informal meetings with their students to check their overall progress. These meetings can include coffee breaks, going to on and off campus events, or simply having a causal office meeting.
To ensure that communication and interaction between mentors and student's are effective, a Match Support System (MSS) has been developed so that student's are properly served and the mentors are not overwhelmed. The MSS staff serves to remind the mentors of their commitments and to check the progress of their matches.
