International Student Mentor Program

The LGBTQ+ International Student Mentoring Program program aims to create long-lasting relationships between new international LGBTQ+ students and upper level students of the University to share personal and academic guidance and advice. In the program you will make connections with supportive campus community members, participate in fun social gatherings, and encourage academic and personal support: Empower others. Empower yourself!
