Mar Thoma College undertakes mass mentoring, by which the first year degree students are divided into small groups, each group under the care of a mentor, a faculty member. The mentor, as per the demands of time and situations, assumes the role of teacher, guide, counselor, motivator, advisor, role model and referral agent to the mentees, facilitating personal and professional growth. The mentor and mentee work together to reach specific goals and to provide each other with sufficient feedback to ensure that goals are reached.
