Faculty Mentors: Personal Attention and Expert Guidance

Every student at Empire State College is assigned a mentor, a faculty member who serves as your own personal guide and resource. Your faculty mentor:

  • treats you as an individual
  • provides guidance from orientation through graduation
  • helps you develop a degree program and conduct a review of your prior learning
  • coordinates your work with other faculty

Empire State College has over 1,300 full- and part-time faculty, who come from a variety of backgrounds — from business to the arts. Over 90 percent of the full-time faculty hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their discipline.
