Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs

The ARISE Mentorship Program is a peer mentorship program for first-year students that strives to create a platform for dialogue on the intersection of social justice and culture. Through dialogues and more intimate settings, the program hopes to create a safe space for students to grow and improve their experience at the University while empowering individuals to develop an awareness and a passion for activism.

The ARISE Mentorship Program and the Office of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA) invite you to join a community of students who are interested in exploring South Asian identities through mentorship and community-based activities throughout the year!

Mentees will be matched with upper-class mentors; mentor/mentee pairs are expected to meet up monthly, in addition to attending ARISE community events.
