Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs

ARISE Logo

Arise 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.

Arise Applications are open! 

Arise Mentorship Program and the Office of Multi Ethnic Student Affairs invite you to join a community of students who are interested in exploring South Asian identities through mentorship and community-based activities throughout the 2016-2017 year!

Mentees will be matched with upperclass mentors; mentor/mentee pairs are expected to meet up monthly for an activity together, in addition to attending Arise community events when possible.

Arise's Kick-off is tentatively set for Monday, September 26 in the evening. Please save the date!
