CCI Mentoring Program
The College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) is dedicated to educating and promoting a more diverse student body and workforce in the field of computing. In addition to CCI advising, tutoring, and business partners, mentoring is an integral part of student success.
Research shows that those who are mentored achieve stronger sense of belonging to the university, greater career advancement, larger professional networks, and confidence than those who are not mentored. Mentoring can come in various formats, including peer-to-peer mentoring and corporate mentoring.
The CCI Director of Mentoring develops mentorship programs that support the academic and professional success of students.
For information about the CCI Mentoring Program, please contact its Director, Der Vang.
