Dr. Harley E. Flack Student Mentoring Program
The Dr. Harley E. Flack Student Mentoring Program is comprised of two main components: the male student mentoring program and Ujima- the female student mentoring program.
Male Student Mentoring
Established in 1992 under the auspices of the Executive Vice President/ Provost, Dr. Harley E. Flack, the male component of the Dr. Harley E. Flack Student Mentoring Program is a student mentoring support initiative whose goal is to enhance young men’s overall university experience by supporting them in developing core academic, professional, and cultural skills that will assist in their success at Rowan University. The program is designed to empower male students with guidance as they transition into the university, opportunities to interrogate and make meaning of their identities as they move through the university, and leadership possibilities that can help them reach their educational and professional goals.
Ujima Female Student Mentoring
Since its inception in the spring of 1995, Ujima (a Swahili term meaning “collective responsibility”) was primarily activated by interested young women who felt the need to connect with professional role models who would support them in fulfilling their personal and career goals. The goal of Ujima is to support and facilitate the academic success, empowerment, career preparation and leadership ability of female students through mentorship.
