The ACCESS (Advocates Creating Conversations that Engage and Support Students) Mentoring Program is designed to provide students the opportunity to connect with a member of UNT’s faculty and staff as well as a peer mentor. Although most of the students who participate as mentees in the program are Emerald Eagle Scholars who choose to participate during their first year of enrollment, other students have the opportunity to request mentors as well. ACCESS Mentoring is open to ALL students! The goals of this program are to connect new and returning students to the UNT community, to encourage the use of campus resources, and to promote the four-year graduation plan.
The program matches faculty/staff mentors and a peer mentor with a student mentoring group based on interests reported on the respective applications. Faculty and staff mentors are asked to interact with their mentees at least once each month. Additionally, mentees are asked to initiate interaction with their mentor at least once a semester.
