Overview

Academic mentoring services

The Bepko Learning Center’s academic mentoring programs are based on the philosophy that highly successful academic students can play an integral role in the academic development of their peers. Collaborative learning, role modeling, peer interaction, and peer support are all components of the mentoring process. 

Voluntary mentoring

Voluntary mentoring sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together. Voluntary mentoring is a free program designed to enhance study time and to raise grades while students work collaboratively with peers.

Students who participate in voluntary mentoring will:

  • Develop learning skills to enhance their academic experience
  • Learn processes and methodologies for effective learning (e.g., learning strategies, note-taking skills, listening skills)
  • Enrich their understanding of course content
