January 15, 2015, was Thank Your Mentor Day at WGU, a chance for students and alumni to share their appreciation with their faculty mentors. And they jumped at the opportunity!
Faculty members at WGU fill a role different from faculty at other universities. They are mentors—that's their official job title—whose No. 1 job responsibility is to work for the students, helping each one graduate. And WGU students report the support they receive from mentors makes a big difference.
You can see the impact mentors have on their students' ability to thrive and succeed, staying connected and engaged despite working independently and online, by viewing the videos below. You can also read their posts on social media via the #ThanksWGUMentors hashtag.
