Protege Meet and Greet 2012 

 

Mission and Vision
Protege is a holistic peer mentoring program through which upper-level students help first-year students transition successfully to life at Providence College.  The goal is to provide mentees with a personal resource who can help them manage their academic commitments while fully embracing campus culture.

 

Whom does the program serve?
Both mentor and mentee can benefit from the positive relationship and developmental experience.  New students benefit from the program by having support and guidance not only as they enter Providence College, but throughout the first semester.  Peer mentors will have the opportunity to share their knowledge and personal experiences.  The mentoring relationship encourages growth through personal reflection and open dialogue.  Protege is committed to service and the development of peer leaders in a diverse community.

 

How does the program work?
Incoming first-year students are paired with upper-level students based upon major, academic interests and personal hobbies.  First-year students are invited to Protege during the summer and assigned one upperclassman to work with during the Fall semester.  Mentors meet weekly with their mentee on-campus to discuss the overall transition to Providence College and connect them to various resources available to them.  There are also group social events during the semester that brings together all mentors and mentees, which encourages collaborative mentoring and a sense of community.
