(July 19, 2012) -- UTSA faculty and staff volunteers are needed to serve as mentors for students in the Roadrunner Connections program.
Roadrunner Connections pairs faculty and staff members with first-time freshman and transfer students to serve as personal resources. The mentors will help the students succeed at UTSA and beyond by providing access to opportunities they might not have found otherwise.
Participation is voluntary for both mentor and mentee, so the success of the partnership is dependent upon both.
The mentor role includes:
The time commitment for the program is four to six hours per month, participant schedules permitting. Opening with a September reception, the program will run through April.
To serve as a mentor, visit the Mentor website and complete a short form by July 27. Mentees will be matched with mentors during the week of Aug. 6.
