SAoCC Mentorship

One of the goals for our coalition is a mentoring program between Alumni and current students. This mentoring program has the hopes of giving current students of color a eye into the future outside of Whitman and assistance while still here on campus. This connection between alumni and current students will assist in making life at Whitman as a person of color somewhat easier by having someone who has gotten through it to talk to.

MENTOR EXPECTATIONS

In order to be an effective and transformational mentor with the Alumni of Color Mentoring Initiative, we have the following expectations:
