IAS Academic Mentorship Program

Academic Mentorship Program

Academic Mentoring Programs (AMP) provides a holistic approach to student development through a network of comprehensive programs and services. Through an array of retention-based opportunities, transitional programming, tutoring, skill-building seminars, educational and personal advising, and mentoring programs, AMP participants receive supportive services throughout their college experience. AMP seeks to foster collaborative partnerships with University departments, external organizations, and alumni.

Academic Mentoring Programs includes but not limited to the following:


• Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)
• National Opportunity Program (NOP)
• Foreign Opportunity Program (FOP)

The AMP Tutoring Service provides tutorials and skills-based workshops to students who desire additional academic support services. Collaborative partnerships with academic departments, other offices within Student Affairs, outside organizations, agencies, businesses, and alumni, work to enhance AMP's educational services to students.

The Academic Mentoring Program (AMP) is designed to support students in both academic work and general college and university experience. An older, more experienced professional serving as an academic mentor can offer information, guidance, and encouragement to a student wanting to improve a GPA.

By working closely with a trained, seasoned prefesional mentor in a one-on-one weekly meeting, you can learn to study with better results, develop more effective ways of managing time, and practice proven strategies for taking EXAMS. IAS mentor will help you keep track of grades and absences, calculate GPA, and monitor your academic progress. Each 15-20 minute meeting with IAS mentor can target a special area of concern or simply provide supportive conversation with someone who is committed to your success at IAS. IAS Mentors hold regular workshops throughout the semester that incorporate supplemental academic lessons in an informal, fun, and social way.
