The FOCUS program is a free, one-to-one mentoring program in which students with disabilities meet individually with a student mentor from the Office of Student Disability Services. The purpose of this program is to provide the participants with the skills and supports they need to achieve academic success at the college level.
What Spring 2017 Participants are saying about FOCUS:
My mentor has been extremely helpful this semester. She helped me to improve my time management and organization skills. She helped me to understand how to better hold myself accountable.
FOCUS is a great program to learn tips and strategies for study skills and note taking. I felt comfortable talking with my mentor about my disability. There was never any judgment involved.
The Focus Program helped me to be more successful in my classes. For example, my mentor helped me to make sure I was “on top of” my assignments and that I turned them in on time. Also, my mentor helped me with organizational skills and study tips.
