About Us

The Multicultural Student Mentor Program (MSMP) is a peer-to-peer model designed to facilitate the successful transition and retention of incoming multicultural first-year students. This program promotes and facilitates student interaction and provides opportunities for students (mentors and mentees) to connect and form strong academic relationships, share knowledge, and work together to succeed in college.

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.
