Benefits of  Academic Mentoring

One of the main goals of universities is to help students thrive and succeed in any way they can, preparing them for the real world after graduation. Whether it’s skills, knowledge or confidence, colleges have started offering these mentorship programs to give students a head start on the “real world” ahead of them. Whether it’s preparing students to pursue the career of their dreams or inspiring alumni to give back to their alma mater by helping students network within their chosen field, mentoring is vital to student growth.
