College students
Obtaining accurate student contact
information is crucial
Cold calls are ineffective
Initial contact with student is important
Mentor training is essential
Peer-to-peer mentoring is preferred by
Poor attendance at meet and greet event
Recognition of mentors is necessary
Will be implementing a Classroom Mentoring Model
approach (CMM)
Will continue to target all 3 areas of Developmental
Education. Reading, English, Math courses
Classroom Mentoring Model will operate differently
and more effective than current method
One mentor will address the whole class that is
assigned to them
Additional one-to-one mentoring can be requested
if needed
We will mentor a total of 24 classes in the
Summer semester.
◦ 13 classes Summer I
◦ 11 Classes Summer II

Mission del Paso Campus
