What is the IU Kokomo Faculty-Student Mentoring Program?
The IU Kokomo Faculty-Student Mentoring Program will allow students receiving accessibility services to connect with a faculty member on campus. Mentors will meet with the student on an as needed basis that works for both the student and mentor throughout the year. Mentorship's can extend beyond one year, if needed. Through participation in the program, students will be able to gain an increased understanding of expectations at the post-secondary level, along with an increase in self-advocacy skills. Faculty will gain valuable experience working with diverse populations. All efforts will be made to connect the student with a faculty member in their area of interest or study.
