What Is The Men's Resource Center?
Professional and Peer Mentors Interested in a Mentoring Program? After an initial meeting with the program coordinator, you will have the opportunity to be matched up. We ask you to consider the following:
Professional mentors: Our professional mentors are a diverse group of faculty and staff here at KCC. Some have earned bachelors degrees, others masters or doctorates. What draws them to this program is their commitment to helping you map out your own academic success. They will work with you, one-on-one, to manage academic challenges, financial aid issues, and the social aspects of the college experience.
Peer mentors: Our peer mentors are fellow men of Integrity, Responsibility, Opportunity, and Nobility (I.R.O.N.), students who have already achieved some success at KCC. They will listen to your concerns, share their experiences, and help you to create your own path.
