Academic Mentors (AMs) are upper year student leaders in Arts & Science. They are dedicated to supporting the academic success of first year students in Arts & Science by running helpful programs, hosting monthly study sessions, and by advising and referring students to resources on campus.
Programs that the AMs run are designed to help first year students explore new resources or ideas, interact with faculty or staff as helpful networking opportunities, build transferable skills that can aid in finding summer work, and generally link students to helpful resources that can be used in upper years. Examples include workshops and sessions on cover letter/resume skills, goal setting, and utilizing academic advising and other offices on campus to support success.
AMs work closely with the Engineering Programming Ambassadors (EPAs), the Residence Life Coordinator, and the Assistant Dean, Residence Life.
