Positively Assisting Successful Students (PASS)
The Center for Academic Success and the Office for Multicultural Affairs has joined together to design a program to positively engage our new ENC Freshman class. We are initiating a Mentor Program called Positively Assisting Successful Students (PASS). In this program, the freshman will be assigned to a Faculty or Staff member that volunteers to be a Mentor. Also in this program, all of our incoming freshman will be assigned to a selected, trained upperclassmen who will serve as a Peer Mentor. Some of their responsibilities will include showing them different aspects of campus, providing direction, advice, etc.
The mission of PASS is to enhance student development through relationships, communication, and leadership in the transition process for freshman students. The program is dedicated to encourage self-determination, independence, and problem-solving through interactions and reciprocal relationships between mentors and mentees.
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith. Galatians 6:9-10
