Support for Incoming Black Students (S.I.B.S.) is a year-long, student-coordinated, peer mentorship program that is open to all first-year students at the University of Michigan (U-M) who are interested in issues that affect the Black community and dedicated to the holistic wellbeing, retention and success of the students in the program. The goal of S.I.B.S. is to cultivate a sense of community, enhance community members' experiences at U-M as well as provide intentional mentorship and educational opportunities for students on campus.
