Reaching Out to Students with Personalized Support...
The first few weeks of each semester are a critical time for many students, especially
freshmen, as they struggle to adjust to new schedules and new expectations on their
time and resources. Retention Mentors provide personalized support by reaching out
to students who have been identified (through programs like Early Alert and Midterm
Grades) at risk for failing a class. Additionally, some of the mentors are dedicated
to provide support for specific populations who benefit from extra support at all
times of the academic calendar. Through phone calls, emails, and one-on-one visits,
our mentors help at-risk students identify resources and develop strategies that will
lead to semester success, and progress toward graduation.
If you are a student who needs additional help in accessing available campus resources,
contact a Retention Mentor at 801-863-8920, or contact one of the area specialists
