To support the NCIN program, officials created a task force consisting of the school’s director of enrollment, lab coordinator, and director of the undergraduate program. Each task force member assumed responsibility for some aspect of scholar success.
The leader who was responsible for mentoring assigned an upper-class, second-degree student to serve as a student and community mentor to each scholar, and organized discussions. Scholars maintained biweekly electronic contact with their mentors throughout the 16-month program and met with them each quarter in person. Scholars who missed scheduled sessions were gently reminded that participation was mandatory.
