FIRSTScholars Learning Communities 2016
March 4, 2016
On Friday, March 4, FIRSTScholars Learning Communities hosted its first ever Meet your Mentor/Mentee Learning Luncheon. As part of the program, each FIRSTScholar is paired with a faculty member from within his or her discipline of study, as well as with a professional mentor currently working within their field of study/interest. The goal of the mentorship is to provide students with a professional network they can leverage for success at MCC and beyond. Faculty will help guide the scholar’s studies while the professional mentors help provide coaching in building professional networks. The official mentor/mentee relationship is a one-year commitment, through their first year; however, it is hoped that that these will become long-term associations throughout their careers at MCC and beyond.
