The mission of the academic mentor program is to enhance the student-athlete's academic advantage and potential for successful completion of a college degree program at Florida Atlantic University, and to remain eligible to participate in their sport. Academic mentors instill a commitment and appreciation for learning as well as foster intellectual independence, growth and development. Specifically, mentors work with their student-athletes to develop successful note-taking in class, study and test-taking strategies, as well as organizational and time management skills. Athletic Academic Counselors work closely with mentors to identify the specific needs of the student-athlete and create a plan of action to ensure academic success.
