Commuter Assistance Mentorship Program

The mission of the Commuter Assistant Mentorship Program (CAMP) is to facilitate and welcome incoming commuter students to the institution by providing timely and accurate information and appropriate referrals. CAMP offers a primary point of contact with and access to the institution by providing comprehensive contact information and general descriptions for many programs and services of the institution. CAMP must meet the introductory `informational needs of the campus community: students, faculty members, staff, prospective students and their family members, alumni, and general visitors.

The Lehman College Commuter Assistance Mentorship Program (CAMP) will match upper-class commuters called Commuter Assistants (CAs) with first-year commuter students or transfer commuter students to assist with their transition to college, just like Resident Assistants (RAs) help resident students transition to college life, CAs will serve as mentors as well as a resource. Each CA will keep in contact with their commuting first-year student(s) or transfer student(s), help them navigate Lehman College, and help them to get involved on campus. All CAs will hold desk hours during the week so that they are accessible to answer questions that a commuter student may have. CAs will also be equipped with the most up-to-date information regarding campus events and news so that they are prepared to assist any commuter student that may need their guidance.
