(June 5, 2013) -- UTSA faculty and staff volunteers are needed to serve as mentors for students in the Roadrunner Connections program.
Roadrunner Connections pairs faculty and staff with first-time freshmen and transfer students to serve as personal resources. The mentors will help the student succeed at UTSA and beyond by providing access to opportunities they might not have found otherwise.
Participation in the program is voluntary for both mentor and mentee, so the success of the partnership is dependent upon both.
The mentor role includes:
The UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center is recruiting students who have expressed an interest in participating in Roadrunner Connections. 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 UTSA Mentor website and complete a short form before Aug. 2. Mentees will be matched with mentors during the week of Aug. 19.
For more information, contact the UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center at 210-458-4770 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
