Mentoring and Advising

Provide students with an integrated partnership of faculty mentors, staff advisors, and life design counselors

Individual mentoring is an essential element of successful undergraduate education. The commission recommends that each Hopkins undergraduate be provided an integrated team of a faculty mentor, an academic advisor, and a life design coach. This team would guide students from their acceptance into the university through their post-collegiate experience.


  • The Excellence in Academic Advising initiative at Homewood will redefine the roles of the professional advisors. The role of faculty as mentors and academic advisors will evolve in parallel.
  • The pilot First-Year Seminars in KSAS have as a common feature the role of faculty as de facto first-year mentors to their students.
