Empowering Mentors to Promote Women’s Retention (EMPOWR) program seeks to increase the social integration and engagement, and ultimately retention, of nontraditional female students attending East Mississippi Community College (EMCC) through a peer mentoring program. Augmented with interactive speaker sessions, students learn more about available student services, career planning, financial aid, health, and relationship management. EMCC also proposes working with first generation women in jeopardy of dropping out at the Scooba campus.
