Mentors & Staff

The Freshmen Leadership Program offers students a number of resources, including dedicated mentors and support staff.  Meetings are facilitated by the Dean of Students while our program is coordinated by the Dean of Students’ Staff. Meetings are run by select former Freshmen Leaders who also serve as personal mentors to the incoming freshmen.

Favorite thing about FLP:
"This program allowed myself and many others to find who we truly are as a person and as a leader at Sam and in the Huntsville community.  Within the program the participant is given many opportunities to grow into an ideal Bearkat. Also, while participating in the Freshmen Leadership Program you are introduced to campus administrators, faculty, and staff that will be of great help in your future endeavors. My favorite part of being a mentor is being allowed to sit back and watch the Diversity in the group and how that helps them work together and learn from each others differences. As a mentor for the program I strive to be a role model and most importantly a friend to all 30 of the Freshmen Leaders."

Favorite thing about FLP:
"My favorite thing about FLP is that it is one of the smallest and personal groups you will find yourself in at your time at Sam and that even though we are all leaders, it is a diverse group of leaders because we all have something different to bring to the table. Also, FLP is a great opportunity to meet your best friends that you will cherish for the rest of your life."
