PATH Mentoring

PATH Mentors

Franke Honors student mentors will help you navigate your time at Arizona and beyond – because they were once in your shoes.

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! 

PATH (Partnerships through Honors) is the Franke Honors College peer mentorship program for first-year students. Participants 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 have the opportunity to build partnerships across the Franke Honors College: with incoming students, fellow PATH Mentors, Honors staff, and alumni of the program. In each partnership formed through this program there will be the opportunity, supported by Franke Honors College staff and events, for each partner to grow personally and professionally.

Mentors receive in-depth mentoring training and participate in ongoing leadership and professional development, earning two units of Honors internship credit over the course of a two-semester commitment.

If you are interested in building community and connections while gaining important skills for your future, PATH is the program for you.
