University Multicultural Mentor Program is seeking mentors

Published: July 23, 2019 9:50 am

The University Multicultural Mentor Program (UMMP) is currently seeking faculty and staff to serve as mentors for the 2019–2020 academic year.

In the program, one incoming first-year student is assigned to a faculty or staff member. Participating faculty and staff are asked to make a serious effort to carry out this mentorship assignment by scheduling meetings with the student throughout the academic year. The mentoring time commitment is approximately one to two hours per month.

This kind of interaction is positive and productive for students and mentors, and it assists greatly in making a large university more personal for students, especially those who have been historically underrepresented.

To submit an application to be a mentor, please complete this form by Aug. 5.

Questions can be sent to Danielle Domingo at DDomingo@ufsa.ufl.edu or ummp@ufsa.ufl.edu.
