Multicultural Student Mentor Program

About Us

The Multicultural Student Mentor Program (MSMP) is designed to assist multicultural students in adjusting academically and socially to the WSU environment. The program provides opportunities for students (mentors and mentees) to connect and form strong academic relationships, share knowledge, and work together to succeed in college, by promoting and facilitating open interaction among students.




Students who participate in the MSMP receive academic credit, intensive training, and the opportunity and satisfaction of serving new students. In addition, mentors are awarded a scholarship while having the opportunity to enhance their teamwork, interpersonal communications, and cross-cultural skills. Students select and design activities, participate in ongoing individual projects and special events and gain leadership skills in the field of mentoring and leadership development.


Application Process



To become a multicultural student mentor, interested students must complete an on-line application during the fall semester previously to the academic year they would like to be a mentor.
