The Faculty Athletics Mentor Program aims to enhance relationships between the athletics program, student-athletes and faculty by allowing a faculty mentor to become directly involved with a particular team. The program will support the student-athletes who participate in NCAA Division III athletics while helping faculty gain a better understanding of the demands of being a committed student-athlete.
Each intercollegiate team at The University of Scranton has a faculty mentor assigned to it. The faculty mentors show support for the team and help to facilitate communication between student-athletes and faculty. They also serve as a resource for academic, career and personal issues that student-athletes may face in their everyday lives.
