Provost's Undergraduate Mentoring Program
The Provost Undergraduate Mentoring Program connects first year (freshmen or transfer
students), first-generation college students to San Diego State University (SDSU)
faculty, staff and administrators who were also first generation college students
and/or serve as first-generation student advocates at SDSU.
Benefits of Student Participation in the Provost Undergraduate Mentoring Program
Student mentees will:
- set academic and/or professional goals and develop steps to achieve those goals
- connect with a mentor and gain tools to navigate SDSU opportunities and resources
- gain advice as they continue to progress through their academic major
(e.g. graduate advice, career pathways/options, and/or other out of classroom experiences)
- develop individualized plans that support future professional goals
- increase their competitiveness for graduate school or the workforce through seminars or other campus programs
Students will be matched to faculty mentors through the Division of Academic Engagement & Student Achievement (DAESA), Provost Undergraduate Mentoring Program office. Students may be matched with mentors who may be in a different department than the student's major, pending the number of faculty/staff mentors available.
