The Academic Mentoring Partnership (AMP)

The Academic Mentoring Partnership (AMP) is a program designed for students in the College of Arts & Sciences who would like additional support in reaching their academic goals. In addition to working one-on-one with a peer mentor, AMP participants will have access to a variety of academic resources and the ability to work directly with staff from the CAS Advising Office.

Peer Mentors are sophomores, juniors and seniors from a variety of majors in the College of Arts & Sciences. They are highly knowledgeable about the University, trained to help address specific problems or concerns, and eager to help fellow CAS students. Once a student has enrolled in the program, a mentor will contact him/her within the first week of the semester and schedule an initial meeting to tell the student more about the program and discuss how, together, they can help the student meet his/her academic goals for the academic year. It is required and strongly encouraged that students have regular contact with their mentors, and meet once a week throughout the semester to ensure progress is being made toward their own goals.
