Student Educators and Advanced Mentors (SEAM)

I.  ACCESS TO ACADEMIC RESOURCES

These matches are often based on academic needs and personal interests.

III.  SELF-DIRECTED & PEER ASSISTED LEARNING

The program provides avenues for students to engage in self-directed and peer assisted learning.

IV.  LEADERSHIP

The program will provide opportunities for students to strengthen their leadership and educational skills.
