UA MIS department congratulates Computer Science mentors

To all MIS Faculty and Students:

Computer Science Mentoring is an MIS student-run program that provides assistance and resources to students in CS 114, 124, and 325 classes each semester. MIS students volunteer as mentors to instruct and guide current students in the fundamentals of these classes.

Mentoring sessions for a particular class are held twice a week for an hour each day.

Better programs, solid leaders, skilled problem-solvers, focused communicators and higher retention rates are created through the mentoring program each semester making it an important aspect of the professional and education careers of all involved students.

Not only are mentors giving back to their fellow students, but they are also perfecting their own computer science skills and learning valuable traits such as giving clear instructions, managing time and people, working with others, and improving interpersonal communication.

This email is meant to inform the MIS faculty and the student body of the CS mentors who have been active within the mentoring program throughout the Fall 2007 Semester.
