Faculty Mentor (DFM)​ Project

The IVC Faculty Mentor (DFM) project is a collaboration between the faculty in the School of Guidance and Counseling and other departments in an effort to provide mentoring on majors that will increase the expertise available to students for their academic and career planning. The project includes 12 faculty from a variety of majors/disciplines or subject areas.

Faculty Mentors (DFMs) will be available to students to provide:

  • Advice for students in their academic and career planning.
  • Insight on career options and life goals to help students declare an appropriate major.
  • Referrals for students to campus support services that can help meet their academic and psychosocial needs.

To meet with a Faculty Mentor, email to set up an appointment or stop by during the their regular DFM hours.
