The Office of Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion and the Office of Student Affairs offer a robust peer mentorship program for first-generation students and students of color. Incoming students are paired with mentors. Through guided conversations, community experiences, and leadership development workshops both mentors and mentees are given opportunities to build resilience in an inclusive environment, experience solidarity, and empower themselves during their time at the Mailman School. Questions about the program can be directed to Christina M. Ferrari, Assistant Director of Student Life in the Office of Student Affairs.
Applications for the R.I.S.E. 2020-2021 cohort will be posted shortly.
