Student Success/Retention Programs

Faculty Staff Mentors
At Rockford University we feel it is important that we focus on the personal and social development of our new students to enhance their first-year experience.

All new First-Year Students are assigned to a Faculty Staff Mentor. First year students will have a supportive relationship with an experienced Rockford University mentor. 

The mentor program is is designed to increase a student’s:
  • Sense of belonging
  • Overall (positive) feelings about their university experience
  • Knowledge of academic resources available
  • Faculty/staff interaction outside of the classroom
  • Persistence through graduation at Rockford University
