A significant successful result has been observed by introducing an adaptive and flexible mentoring program based on each individual student's need, while carefully listening to the challenges they face during their academic years. This careful study and systematic observation help decipher what did and did not work. The new mentoring method has increased graphic design students' success rate, dramatically improving it from previous years. It is immensely important to understand and appreciate the diverse background and different levels of understanding for individual students. This nature of observations helps the mentor to prepare the curriculum and explain assignments from various angles, allowing for a more target-oriented approach. Adaptive mentoring is an excellent way to support diversity and construct a dialog that builds confidence.
