ACE Mentors

College of Health and Human Services' 2018 ACE Mentors

The Academic and Career Engagement (ACE) Program in the College of Health and Human Services provides our first year undeclared students with an environment that encourages academic success in the transition from high school to college. Through personalized academic and career coaching, this first-year experience program assists students with navigating academic and co-curricular resources, developing skills in active learning, reflection, and decision making, and exploring vast career options and alumni connections - all the while fostering a community of belonging and involvement within CHHS and UNH.

Benefits of the ACE Program

Members of the ACE Program participate in a 15 week, two-credit ACE seminar. The seminar helps students learn about CHHS majors and explore career choices, goals, and the resources and opportunities available to students at UNH, such as academic guidance and support for your personal well-being. Every CHHS undeclared student has an ACE peer mentor and an ACE academic coach, who are available to meet on a regular basis.
