The Northwest Vista College faculty-student mentoring program consists of a partnership between faculty (the mentors) and students (the mentees).
The purpose of mentoring is to provide students with greater individual attention to enable students to fulfill their potential as students, professionals, and community members. Mentors can help students transition to college, find needed resources, meet other students, get involved with a student organization, plan for a career, develop marketable skills, and transfer to a university.
