T.E.A.M.

The Transfer Engagement and Achievement Mentorship (T.E.A.M.) program at USF is a peer mentorship program designed especially for transfer students. The program pairs transfer students who are seeking guidance with experienced transfer students who can assist in finding and accessing campus resources, answering questions about campus life and academics, and fostering a growth mindset, leadership skills, and academic success skills.
