R100 | 23948 | Bob Vantine
R100 is designed as a practical way to learn and apply mentoring
skills and strategies through supervised, peer mentoring. For this
course, mentoring will be defined as a paraprofessional, one on one
peer working relationship developed with a fellow student for the
purpose of personalizing and improving the quality of undergraduate
life and learning.
Course activities will increase knowledge and enhance skills essential
to the delivery of responsible, high quality mentoring service.
Course readings, assignments, and class sessions will provide
foundation for understanding the process of mentoring, ways of
understanding human behavior, and forces that shape that behavior.
Through reflection, the professional, ethical, and moral dimensions of
responsibly taking on the role of mentor in the life of another person
will be examined.
As meaningful connections are developed between concepts and
experience, R100 will provide students the opportunity to enhance
leadership capabilities, communication skills, and the potential to
positively influence others through the mentoring process.
Students must attend one of the two alternative weekly sessions held
in Eigenmann Hall, 6th Floor, South Wing, Room 621. It is expected
that a student will pick one of the following sessions and attend it
consistently over the duration of the semester.
Tuesday: 7:15 to 8:30 Thursday 7:15 to 8:30
