As part of the Posse Scholarship, each Posse receive a mentor. This mentor is a member of the college faculty or administration who provides support for their Posse. 

Posse Scholars participate in weekly meetings with their Posse over the duration of their freshman and sophomore years. These meetings are led by their mentor. Mentors also meet bi-weekly with individual Posse Scholars to check up with students as they adjust to the college experience. Even though the mandatory weekly meetings end after a Scholar’s sophomore year, it is not uncommon for Posses to continue meeting informally with their mentor.
