Faculty Team Mentor Program
Wesleyan University has a commitment to achieve academic and athletic integration. A liberal arts education can be significantly enhanced by participation in intercollegiate athletics and Wesleyan is committed to a collaborative approach in aligning athletic programs with the academic and student life enterprise.
An important ingredient in this collaborative effort is the involvement of academic faculty in the lives of the student-athlete. Faculty, from a variety of academic disciplines, serve as informal advisors to varsity teams and spend time getting to personally know the athletes. Faculty team mentors enrich the overall experience for team members, encourage student athletes to be fully engaged in the curriculum and provide faculty colleagues with understanding of the mission of intercollegiate athletics.
