We describe the three mentoring programs in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Texas at Arlington, and we provide some data to present their local and broader impacts. The first of these three programs is the S-STEM program funded by the NSF aiming to provide undergraduate mathematics majors with scholarships and mentoring, and it has been running in our department since 2008. The second is the GAANN program supported by the US Education Department aiming to provide doctoral students with fellowships and mentoring, and it has run during 2006-2021. The third is the Bridge-to-Math-Doctorate program supported by the NSF aiming to provide scholarship and mentoring for students to help them transition to doctoral studies, and it has been running in our department since 2016. We elaborate on our vision and strategy in running these programs and on the improvements we have implemented. We also provide some data to demonstrate how the Covid-19 pandemic has been affecting our undergraduate mathematics majors in our NSF S-STEM program.
