Description of role and duties:
My Personal role was an academic Mentor.  I was in class with the student for 3 hours.  I then would meet with the other mentors for a supervision meeting with a faculty member.  My personal Internship project was a binder.  I created a binder full of information about the college that I believed to be in one place for the students to have easy access to.  
Many students with ID may require additional supports to help them fully access their academic, social, and work experience at Rhode Island College. Supports available as part of the CCS include:
  • Educational Mentoring
  • Support to assist student with course assignments, study help, and course organization.
