Academic Mentoring at the Pirate Academic Success Center


The Academic Mentoring program provides academic support to incoming freshman, supports PASC learning community participants, and provides leader development opportunities for ECU upperclassmen.  The academic mentoring program matches ECU upperclassmen with ECU undergraduate students and provides academic coaching, study skills support, and priority tutoring for mentees. During weekly mentoring sessions, Academic Mentors assist freshman mentees with transitioning from high school to college life, strengthening academic study skills, developing effective study habits, learning to use graphic organizers, fostering connections to academic resources and effectively managing time.

Who are the Mentors?


Mentors are upperclassmen that have a passion for helping their peers succeed!  They come from all walks of life and have served in various organizations such as the military, ECU Ambassadors, Greek Life, or have tutored for the PASC.  Mentors are required to participate in the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Mentor Training Program (IMTPC).  Academic Mentors meet during the year to cover CRLA Peer Mentoring Training Topics.  These training sessions equip Academic Mentors with the knowledge and skills to assist incoming freshmen.
