Course Description

A Faculty Transfer Mentor is a faculty or staff member interested in developing supportive, academic relationships with prospective and new Appalachian transfer students. Mentors, ideally in the student's area of study, will provide help in understanding the curriculum and the student's remaining required coursework as well as provide guidance, support, and referral to resources that will benefit new students in a new environment. Mentors have the ability to influence, encourage, and guide transfer students to enhance their academic success. During the training participants will learn about the characteristics and needs of transfer students, the transfer student population at Appalachian, and what you can do to support transfer students and to be a successful transfer mentor.
