WGU Indiana Mentors serve a critical advising and support role for their assigned students’ success. Mentors are not teachers and do not teach any part of the courses. They are the students’ primary source of information on their program and the policies and procedures. Mentors counsel students in understanding expectations and overcoming obstacles to ensure success.

WGU Indiana Chancellor Allison Barber sat down for an interview with INC Now’s Linda Jackson to talk about WGU Indiana, the state’s new non-profit, online university.

What role does a WGU Indiana Enrollment Counselor do at our Indiana online university? WGU Indiana Enrollment Counselors recruit, enroll, and assist new students who apply for the university's degree programs. They counsel anyone that is interested in the university, not just applicants. They are the first line of contact with the university and play an important role in informing prospective students about the university and guiding them through the process of becoming a student. They also collaborate across a variety of the university's departments to meet the needs of an applicant. We had the pleasure of interviewing one of our Enrollment Counselors, Summer Ball.
