Mentorship Opportunities

A major part of the Student Success Institute is pairing each student applicant with a mentor that will help guide them towards their academic and professional goals. We need people like you to provide:

  • Personal Growth
    Mentors will help participants set short and long-term goals.
  • Professional Growth
    Mentors will help students learn how to prepare for professional settings.
  • Academic Growth
    Mentors will help students develop good academic behaviors such as consistent studying, test preparation, and the utilization of campus resources.

All Lone Star College full-time and part-time employees can serve as mentors for the Student Success Institute. All mentors are required to attend a training conducted by the Student Success Institute and are subject to a background check.
