- Build relationships with faculty mentors as you support their work in the classroom.
- Develop leadership skills as you guide your peers to accomplish long- and short-term academic goals.
- Receive training in tutoring best practices that will transfer to other situations where you might teach, mentor, or lead others.
- Earn cords to wear at graduation.
