The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion and the College of Education Undergraduate Office are pleased to have undergraduates in the ECFS and ECO participate in the second year of this program where we pair Underrepresented Minority (URM) and International College of Education graduate students ("Mentors") with URM and International undergraduate students in the College of Education ("Mentees").

Because of the mission of the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion, this mentorship program aims to deepen our support and commitment to students who come from underserved and often underrepresented communities such as Native, Black, African/African-American, Latinx/Chicanx, Asian/Pacific Islander, Multi-Racial, International. Our goal is for mentees to deepen their undergraduate experience, gain insight into the mentor’s graduate experience, explore career paths, and be supported in their academic and student success. For the graduate student mentors this is an opportunity to give back, to support the next generation and also to gain leadership, coaching, and mentorship experience that we believe will also benefit your career and trajectory.

Things you can potentially benefit from your participation:

• Community Building
• Networking/Collaborating
• Professional Skills
• Leadership Skill Building
• Graduate School Guidance
• Getting involved
• A Friend
• Collaborating Ideas
• Role Model
• Self-Care
• Long-term Goals
