Mentors at Thomas Edison State College

The College has approximately 687 mentors who facilitate learners’ academic progress. Thomas Edison State College mentors are selected because of their academic and experiential preparation as well as their commitment to serving adult students. Like our students, mentors come from many places. They may also work at other colleges and universities or hold positions in the nonprofit or corporate world. We require that all graduate mentors hold a terminal degree. Many also have extensive professional experience.
