Join the Mosaics Mentorship Program for first-gen students

Contact: Juliane Corpus

Become a mentor or mentee. Applications due Jan. 29.

The Mosaics Mentorship program is recruiting staff, faculty, and students (3rd year status and above, graduate school included) to support students outside of classrooms. We are also looking for students who are interested in having a mentor.

The Mosaics Mentorship Program offers students the opportunity to cultivate an intentional and positive experience with the support of a mentor, focusing on students' belonging, self-growth, well-being, and identity. Mentors will provide knowledge about campus resources, be a success advocate, and most of all, serve as a compassionate listening ear for these excited scholars.

We hope to foster and grow these relationships through transformational moments. Each month mentors and mentees are expected to meet once a month and opt into monthly gatherings with other mentors/mentees within the program. Mentors can opt into having more than one mentee, as can mentees can opt into more than one mentor.

While preferred, it is not a requirement for mentors to identify as first-generation college students. Mentors will need to attend (1) training session on motivational interviewing in January. Registering for a session will be sent to you shortly after your application submission.


See the links below to apply to be a mentor or mentee. The deadline to submit these forms will be Jan. 29, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. We hope to provide pairings by mid-February.

For any questions, please reach out to Juliane Corpus.
