The ACP Faculty Advisor Program provides students the opportunity to develop a professional relationship with a faculty member who may serve as a role model for the student. By pairing faculty members with students over the course of their academic career the students are given a resource and sounding board where he or she can share his or her goals, academic needs and discuss other issues. This program also provides students exposure to professional interactions with peers, other faculty members and administration. The goal of the program is to provide students with an advocate on the faculty as well as a source of academic and personal support.
The Student Mentor Program is a peer mentoring program at ACP. This program is designed to provide incoming first year students a second or third year student mentor to serve as a resource for them during their first year in pharmacy school. The program hopes to empower students to help themselves and each other. The goal of the program is to assist first year students in acclimating effectively to the academic environment and college community. Student advisors are supervised by the Assistant Dean of Student and Alumni Affairs.
