Support for Athletes Faculty athletic mentors: Supporting student athletes on and off the field Committed Faculty

For most of the week, you’ll find McDaniel’s faculty athletic mentors in labs or studios or discussing Byzantine art with a group Art History students. But come Game Day, these professors exchange lab coats and laptops for Green Terror fan gear before heading off to cheer on their favorite team. But the fast growing faculty mentor program goes far beyond cheering from the sidelines. The program matches faculty members with athletic teams of their choice. If the match gels, the mentor helps team members with academic issues and fosters better understanding among faculty of the demands student-athletes face all the while identifying specific and sometimes unique ways they can support the team and its members.
