Dr. Harley E. Flack Student Mentoring Program
Peer and Professional Mentors
Upon completing a Mentor Request Form, students will have the opportunity to hold an initial meeting with the Assistant Director or Graduate Coordinator to be matched with either a peer or professional mentor.
Peer Mentors: Our peer mentors are Harley E. Flack Student Mentoring participants who have already achieved some success at Rowan. They are trained to listen to their mentees’ concerns, share their own experiences, and help their mentees create their own path to success.
Professional Mentors: Our professional mentors are a diverse group of Rowan University faculty and staff members. What draws them to volunteer their precious time and energy to this program is their commitment to helping Rowan students map out their own academic and professional success.
