Mentoring & Outreach Programs
The mentoring staff at the SAM Center provides programming to enhance students' academic experience at SHSU. Through our individual mentoring and group programs, students gain additional skills to help strengthen their academic performance.
Mentors are available daily during office hours and students are welcome to walk in. Flexibility is important and we make it a priority to communicate with students via e-mail, phone and SKYPE, and we post updates on Facebook and Twitter.
Whatever your needs are, stop in to see a mentor today - you'll be glad you did!
