Description of Mentorship Program
This program will be offered during the academic year through the COSAM Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. It is designed to match new students of color with knowledgeable upperclassmen to better support the acclimation and development of the traditionally underrepresented student populations, specifically within Science and Mathematics degree programs.
The mentoring program is designed to support the academic, professional, and cultural development of the racially diverse students of Auburn University with an ultimate objective of increasing retention and graduation rates within the STEM Baccalaureate degree programs.
This experiential learning opportunity provides the mentee with exposure to upperclassmen in their major. The mentor/mentee partnership will: help students engage with the coursework, provide professional development through networking and internships, explore future employment opportunities, and prepare for continuing education.
When: Each Academic Year
The mission of the COSAM peer mentoring program is to Promote Academic Success for Students (PASS) by providing a healthy learning and social environment. Minority freshmen are paired with upper classmen in their major areas for a smooth transition into college. The program seeks to create a “family away from home” environment to help freshmen reach their academic and social potential at Auburn University.
