With a varied IT career background that has centered on being the link between customers and the more-techie insiders, WGU mentor David Grandpre has brought that critical experience to his role helping students working toward their online IT degree.
WGU students Casey Jenkins and Stephen Allen were recently chosen to receive the CompTIA Education Foundation’s CompTIA IT Merit Award Scholarship. The award recognizes and rewards students who have recently achieved CompTIA certification and are pursuing a degree in Information Technology.
What role does a WGU mentor do at our online university?
WGU Mentors serve a critical advising and support role for their assigned students’ success. Mentors are not teachers and do not teach any part of the courses. They are the students’ primary source of information on their program and the policies and procedures of the online university. Mentors counsel students in understanding expectations and overcoming obstacles to ensure success.
