The Sponsors Mentorship Program

The Sponsors Mentorship Program pairs volunteer mentors with men and women who are making the transition from incarceration back into Lane County. Volunteer Mentors will receive extensive support from Sponsors staff. Prior to being matched, our Mentors receive an orientation training that goes over boundaries and expectations, along with monthly follow-up support groups and active case management throughout the duration of the match. If you are interested or would like more information please contact Joel Smith at 541-735-6400 or jsmith@sponsorsinc.org.

TRiO Programs: Student Support Services (SSS)

Openings in TRIO/Student Support Services

Openings in TRIO Student Support Services
Are you a first generation student, a low income student or a student with a documented disability through AEC?  If you identify with any of those categories and are interested in learning more about our TRIO program here on campus please go to triosss@uoregon.edu for more information.
Mid-terms are fast approaching and many students are already stressed and overwhelmed and are feeling the effects of balancing school with outside obligations.  Our program supports students at the UO to successfully work towards earning their degree.
We serve a large number of non-traditional students in our program and work hard to make sure all our students, many who are transferring from a community college or starting back to school after a long break, feel comfortable and connected here on campus.  We can become your one stop for financial support and answering complex questions about funding and billing, determining what classes to take each term to stay on track and earn your degree efficiently, support relating to academic and study skills, FREE tutoring for a wide variety of classes and so much more.
If you have questions about whether or not you qualify you should complete the on-line application and we will determine eligibility for you.  If you are not eligible, we still have a lot of information about resources and services you can access on campus that do not require TRIO admission.  Check out triosss@uoregon.edu, come to 68 PLC or call the Teaching and Learning Center at 541-346-3226 for more information.  We are here to help.
