Faculty Interaction Training: An Extension of the SEEK Mentoring Program Pilot Project.
Edwards-Wilson, Runae
This paper discusses a proposal for a pilot project that will train undergraduate students to interact effectively with faculty. The training is targeted for both social and academic situations. The students involved in the project are opportunity program students who may or may not be on academic probation. The project is an extension of a mentoring program that was previously implemented by the SEEK program at the College of Staten Island, New York. The target sample will be 10 students with grade point averages below 3.0. It will include some students on academic probation. A second group of students will be monitored, but not mentored, as a comparison group. Mentors will be alumni of the SSK program. It is hoped that by teaching at-risk undergraduate students appropriate social protocols they will be more successful in achieving their goals in social situations that will benefit them academically.
