STUDY MENTORS

Study Mentors' Perspectives on the 4 CORNERSTONES

Engage: “With SMs, students can overcome the disconnect between homework and life goals.”

Accomplish: “Students set weekly and assignment goals, and ask “what can I do to achieve this.”

Empower: “SMs help students establish baseline learning and study habits so that students take risks.”

Enrich: “By motivating students to take risks in learning, SMs deepen students’ commitment to the context of learning.”


General Information

WHO WE ARE: Study Mentors are peer-facilitators who help first-year students make the transition from high school to college and help all students adjust to increased course workloads throughout students’ college careers. They are trained through an apprenticeship model and supervised by the Program Coordinator.

WHAT WE DO: Study Mentors offer academic time management using the Big Picture calendar (see sidebar), reading and note-taking strategies. They use a problem-solving approach to help students examine themselves as learners and guide students to utilize specific programmatic and institutional resources like Teaching Fellows, Writing Fellows, or Study Tables. In addition, Study Mentors model confident academic engagement and offer students a perspective that is real, responsive, and responsible.

WHEN AND WHERE YOU CAN FIND US: Study Mentors meet with students in the Center for Teaching and Learning. To make an appointment, please logon to TutorTrac using the link at the top right hand corner of this page.
