To encourage and develop students to be responsible, empowered
learners, who demonstrate academic confidence, pride, knowledge
of self, and their cultural heritage.
The Center for Africana Studies prides itself on empowering students
to become successful citizens of the campus community. The Mentoring
program provides a foundation for student success based on the
belief that students who make connections with faculty and peers,
feel a part of the campus environment and are more likely to be
retained until graduation. These unions help students to develop
productive relationships with faculty, staff, and peers alike.
Participating in the Mentoring program is mutually beneficial
to both mentors and students; and maintains the spirit of the
Center for Africana Studies dual purpose of enhancing students’
academic ability and developing good citizenry.
