To improve the retention and graduation rate of
ALANAI students in higher education and high school.
To provide ALANAI students with the necessary financial resources needed to complete their undergraduate studies. MENTORING
The society's MENTORS Plus component puts students in touch with various administrators, graduate students, sophomores, junior, and seniors with mutual interests.
Faculty, from a range of academic disciplines, serve as role models, mentors, and advisers. Faculty, administrators, and graduate students from other local institutions also volunteer to serve as mentors.
The ALANAI Honor Society strongly encourages
collaboration and networking as keys to success. Students are expected to work closely with their academic advisers and career counselors to be kept abreast of the many
opportunities available to them. Working with other
similarly motivated students is also a crucial experience for members, who are encouraged to join the University's Honors Program and to participate in regional and national honor societies and join the Commonwealth College
