I implemented a mentor program in Fall Semester 1994. We now have 36
mentors and 63 "mentees." Mentors, which are faculty and staff, have been
recognized in the past with a pin, a certificate, a poem written by a
student about a mentor. Each mentors has received a manual with helpful
information and a resource list. How else can we acknowlege these
outstanding people who give above and beyond their already full schedules?

Most of the students are equity students: single parents, displaced
homemakers, Limited English, physically challenged, learning disabled.
Many have math phobias and the math department all volunteers and said
send them on. Office technology majors ask for administrative assistants.
It's an exciting endeavor and very rewarding. It is so hard to recognize
people for something that cannot be "priced."
