About The Campus Life Mentor (CLM) Program
Within the Center for New Student & Family Programs (NSFP), The Campus Life Mentor Program is designed to engage new students with the University of Utah and surrounding campus community during their first year. There are mentors for new first-year students, and a women’s interest group.
The mission of the Campus Life Mentor program is to provide new students with an immediate
connection to the University of Utah by pairing them with trained mentors who provide
guidance, resources, advice, and support.
How The CLM Program Works
Mentors are experienced students from a variety of backgrounds who serve as role models to new students by helping them transition and acclimate to the University of Utah through individual interactions as well as small and large group events in the fall and spring semesters.
New students are paired with a Mentor in a small group of no more than 15 students. Students are matched with their mentor over the summer based on our CLM matching process. Mentors first make contact with their small groups at the end of the summer, and establish a connection before the beginning of the fall semester. The CLM Kickoff event is held during Welcome Week, and each month there are multiple CLM and campus events that Mentors can attend with their small groups. Mentors also make individual contact with all members of their small group multiple times each month to provide an important line of communication.
CLM Core Values

About The Mentors
Campus Life Mentors are student leaders who have demonstrated academic and personal success at the U, and who desire to instill a sense of confidence and community among their mentees to build a stronger University of Utah family.
Mentors accomplish their goals by providing an immediate connection to the U, creating welcoming and supportive environments, nurturing positive relationships, sharing advice, providing resources for student success, and encouraging involvement across campus.
The transition from high school to college can be challenging! The Center for New Student & Family Programs is committed to helping students be successful, and the CLM program is a great way for new students to start off on the right foot at Utah. Mentoring allows new students the chance to build a network of peers and staff members who can help them make the most of their on campus experience!
Over the past few years, we have been very happy to see that students who participate in the CLM program report high levels of academic and social success at the U!
