Compass Mentors

What is a Compass Mentor?

Compass Mentors work with 3-5 first-year students who identify as first-generation and/or lower-income. A mentor's main objective is to assist their mentees as they navigate Northwestern, seek out resources, and find community. Mentors do this by facilitating one-on-one meetings, social events, and workshops for the mentees. Compass Mentors begin supporting their mentee in the Fall through the end of the academic year.
