Online Orientation: Academic Services


The Lamar Institute of Technology mentoring program matches students with faculty or staff mentors, with the goal of enhancing student success and assisting with the transition to college. Mentors make themselves available as professionally skilled friends. The mentoring relationship develops as students request advice and guidance from their assigned mentors, who offer suggestions and support.

Mentoring contact occurs outside of regular classroom activity and within all policies, rules, codes of conduct and regulations. The mentoring program is not a tutoring service and does not replace advisement or other campus services. However, mentors will work closely with service areas and help students locate and use them effectively.
