A Proven Model for Success
  • The PACT program is featured as a "Best Practice" for retention and career services with the NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers)
  • In January 2010, the American Council of Education shared PACT with the White House as a select  example of innovation in higher education
  • The U.S. Department of Education funded Mercy College with a $25 million grant to assist in the creation of a graduate PACT program

The PACT mentor develops an academic and extracurricular plan specific to the student. The plan is a collaboration between mentor and student, specifically catered to the student’s own goals for his or her life. Each plan has benchmarks, making it easy to stay on track when pursuing defined goals.


Unlike most schools that have many satellites of assistance, your PACT mentor acts as a "one-stop" point of contact for all Mercy College related issues. Meetings with mentors can include discussions on academic progress, self-management, character development, career exploration, mock interviews, internships and networking.


Each student is provided with a personal mentor. Every mentor is highly experienced in academic advising, student life, career preparation, financial services and leadership training. Students are encouraged to establish a close relationship with their mentor through frequent meetings and other points of contact.


PACT Mentors embrace the distinct nature of each student and understand that there isn’t one solution to all student concerns. Thus, Mentors assist each student according to their individual needs and goals. PACT Mentors strive to guide students along a unique journey toward success, maximizing each student’s full potential.
