Of “Project ME” will consist of part-time students taking an orientation course specifically designed to target their needs. Mentors trained in Appreciative Advising will lead students through assignments in the course that will foster student self-sufficiency. The course will include topics such as locus of control and self-efficacy. Mentors will encourage students to engage in college life, student services, and with employees. A capstone project for the course is designed for students to create an individualized educational and financial plan.
