Faculty-Student Mentoring Program

The Faculty-Student Mentoring program is here to support students throughout their time at NLC, and until they complete their goals by either transferring to a university or entering employment.  Students receive encouragement, support, and guidance toward goal completion from a faculty member.

This program formalizes the crucial interactions between faculty and students to be used in conjunction with a professional advisor with the intention of promoting student retention and completion.

Faculty Mentors make a significant impact on our NLC students' lives.

The Two Ways to Get a NLC Faculty Mentor


Ask a faculty member to be your mentor:

Learn about the various NLC Faculty Mentors by viewing the Meet the Mentors page. You can directly e-mail or speak with the faculty member and ask them to be your mentor! You must provide your mentor with your first and last name, BannerID, and ACES email.

Complete the student questionnaire:

If you are not sure who you would like to be your mentor or do not want to ask a mentor directly, complete the student questionnaire. Based off of your responses, you will be matched with an available mentor.

The questionnaire also allows you to request specific faculty. Please note that if the requested faculty mentors are not available, you will be matched based on your other responses in the questionnaire to the best available mentor.


Once you are matched to a faculty mentor, the faculty mentor will contact you via your ACES email. This process may take up to two weeks.
