Students Connecting with Mentors for Success (SCMS)
The purpose of the SCMS program is to improve the academic achievement, retention,
and graduation rates of our students, with the goal of preparing them to transfer
to a four-year university or successfully enter the workforce. We achieve this by
providing professionals from the community who serve as mentors and provide one-on-one
supportive relationships to our students. Mentors offer advice, insight, and guidance
to mentees regarding academic and professional pursuits and general life matters.
The SCMS program is currently for any interested full- or part-time student who is
African American, Native American, or Hispanic, and is in an academic program that
results in an associate degree or certificate of mastery.
