Fall 2020 will look and feel different for students, staff, and faculty at The University of Texas at Austin. Many resources, including Protect Texas Together, Longhorn Connection, and Longhorns Online, provide support and timely information to students and the UT community. First-Year Interest Group (FIG), Transfer-Year Interest Group (TrIG), and 360 Connections mentors and facilitators have a unique opportunity to connect and work with first-year students. The First-Year Experience Office (FYE) is prepared to support you throughout your time as a mentor or facilitator.
FYE created this website to pull together resources and provide mentors and facilitators with best practices for adapting to fall 2020, including building community, mentoring online, helping students adapt to online learning, and supporting students’ health and wellness. Among the following buckets you will also find the updated list of fall 2020 requirements and guidance for FIG and TrIG mentors, additional resources relevant to facilitators, and the processes required for mentor hiring and payment.
