S.T.E.A.M. Freshman Mentoring Program

The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Mathematics) Minority Mentoring Program serves as a joint collaboration between the College of Engineering, the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) Program. The purpose of this initiative is to provide incoming underrepresented students with vital tips, strategies and opportunities through peer-to-peer programing, in an effort to serve as a catalyst for both academic and professional success within STEAM industries.

Our Goals:

  • Provide freshmen with an upperclassman/mentor within the College of Engineering who will serve as a resource and guide throughout the academic year
  • Ensure that you obtain an internship/development opportunity within your area of study for the summer following the student’s freshman year;
  • Host professional development workshops (once a month) covering topics including internships, career fair preparation, graduate school, etc.

This program will focus on three major areas—academic success, career development and retention. Through the implementation of specialized monthly programs and our COE mentor system, we hope to provide students with a support network for academic and professional success!
