Save the Date: mentor training sessions now available

Fellow Mentors — the organizers of the ASCENT mentor program are listening. They have heard many of us first-timers cry out, "What do I do as a mentor; how do I create a trusting relationship; what if my student doesn't show up to our session?"

Because of our loud crys (and mainly because we all want to see these students excel), they are now offering two mentor training sessions! Yes -- 2 Mentor Training Sessions!

The sessions are available to both Year 1 and Year 2 mentors (trained collaboratively, not separately) and are intended to be inspirational, educational and fun!

On Wednesday, April 2, choose between two session times.
Session I: 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. or
Session II: 4-5:30 p.m.

Where: University of Nevada, Reno, Down Under Cafe, 55 Artemesia St., enter south side of Cafe.

They would love all of our thoughts and suggestions and are continually compiling a list of "hot topics." Please respond to Courtney Klaich at if you have some burning questions that you'd like to be addressed at this training or at future sessions.

RSVP to attend one of the two sessions by calling the Student Success Services office at (775) 784-6307.

As a reminder, this is a mentor training event designed specially for the adults - do NOT bring your student.

If you have not yet signed up to be a mentor, contact Courtney at her email listed above or by calling her at (775) 327-5604.

Get to mentoring!
