A peer-to-peer mentorship program like no other

Grow your confidence, leadership skills, and connections throughout your Franke Honors undergraduate career. 

Just starting out at Franke Honors and feeling a little overwhelmed by the possibilities? You're not alone! Been through it and learned a few things along the way? Share your knowledge and grow your leadership experience. Whether you participate in PATH as a mentee, a mentor, or, ultimately, both, this program can have a huge impact during your time at the Franke Honors College and after graduation. 

Becoming a PATH Mentee

We know that coming to college can be intimidating, but a PATH peer mentor can help ease your transition to the University of Arizona and the W.A. Franke Honors College! 

Mentees in the program will be assigned a PATH mentor (an experienced Franke Honors College student) who can answer questions and be a friendly guide throughout your transition. Participants can expect regular meetings with their matched mentor as well as access to unique social and professional development events. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to start building your honors network! 


Becoming a PATH Mentor 

Mentors accepted to this selective opportunity will gain leadership skills, develop professionally, and build partnerships across the Franke Honors College with incoming students, fellow PATH Mentors, Honors staff, and alumni of the program. In each partnership there will be the opportunity, supported by Franke Honors College staff and events, for individuals to grow personally and professionally.

Mentors earn three units of Honors internship credit over the course of a two-semester commitment (one unit in the fall, two in the spring). They also receive in-depth mentoring training and participate in ongoing leadership and professional development.
