The TRiO mentoring position will consist of both electronic (E-mentoring) and face-to- face mentoring. E-Mentoring is computer-mediated communication (CMC); where computers and social networks are used to communicate or share resources for TRIO student success. TRiO mentoring will be utilized to disseminate academic and career-enhancing resources, information about campus resources, networking activities, events and enhance student connections.
One upper class TRiO student will be connected with several first-year students. The mentor and mentees communicate via the internet a minimum of once a week over a period of 9 months (an academic year). A minimum of three face-to-face meetings are required each quarter, one of which is at the TRiO orientation kick-off event during fall quarter.
The mentor serves as a guide in the school transition process in order to help in-coming freshman to become comfortable with campus life. Your objective goal is help your mentees to become successful in their academic life and continue on into their 2nd year or further.
