MENTORSHIP helps international students succeed on campus
Alumni or current student mentors guide international students through social and cultural learning.
Students begin mentorship over the summer, so that they feel comfortable before they arrive.
Students integrate, make strong social bonds, and help the whole community thrive.
Administrators have access to student-level reporting so that they can monitor the program's progress and impact.
International student yield and retention is significantly increased.
