Mentoring Program

Students at Clarkson College can smoothly transition into college life by participating in our Mentoring program.

As a participant of the program, we pair you with a mentor suitable to meet your needs in areas where you may need support. Our mentors are qualified faculty and staff who can offer classroom guidance, personal direction and assistance in a vast number of areas in between.

Mentors fulfill a number of roles, such as knowledgeable soundboard, coaches, supporters, career-building resources, relationship drivers, teachers and confidants.

Whether it’s familiarizing yourself with the campus and community, discussing job market realities or helping you prepare for a final exam, your mentor will work with you to reach a successful outcome.

A Typical Session

Your one-on-one mentoring sessions are tailored to your individual needs. The subject matter discussed is only as casual or in-depth as you prefer it to be. The length and frequency of sessions is also decided upon between you and your mentor.

How to Participate

Participation in the program is voluntary, and can begin at any time during your first year. To sign up, fill out this form. For more general information contact Kitty Cappellano at 402.552.2694 or
