In an effort to enhance student completion and to sustain program enrollments, the faculty and staff are jointly committed to all efforts of student support.  As a result, a Kaskaskia College Faculty Mentoring program has been established to provide students necessary guidance and support for them to pursue and achieve their educational goals.

The Faculty Mentor will provide a student pursuing a program of study within his or her discipline with a one-on-one supportive relationship to assist the student in certificate/degree progression, and ensure that the student follows his/her established educational plan to completion.

The Faculty Mentor will review the established educational plan with the student prior to each registration period and will offer suggestions for adjusting the plan to fit the student’s needs.  This mentor relationship will be based upon advancing the student’s interest and desire to establish a career within the faculty’s career and educational discipline.  Mentoring shall be conducted pursuant to established procedures.
