Academic Support Programs

Mentoring & Outreach Programs

  • The mentors at the SAM Center provide support to enhance students' academic experience.
  • Mentors are available daily during office hours, and students are welcome to walk in. We also post updates on Facebook and Twitter for your convenience!
  • Flexibility and accessibility are important, so we make it a priority to use all of the tools available to us to communicate with all students, regardless of location.
  • Not on campus? Not a problem! Click here to meet with an academic mentor online via Blackboard Collaborate. The program might take a few minutes to load if this is the first time you’ve used it, but SHSU Online (936-294-2780/toll-free 877-759-2232) can quickly resolve any issues you might have.
  • IMPORTANT: Once you are “in,” call 936-294-4367 to alert our friendly front-desk staff that you are ready to connect with a mentor!
  • Whatever your needs are, visit with a mentor today—you’ll be glad you did!
