Mentee Information

Diversity and Inclusion offers a mentoring program to 1st and 2nd year students of color, which is geared to equip them with the tools necessary for academic success at Minnesota State University, Mankato. As a mentee, participants will be able to ask questions, receive guidance, and discover many of the resources that are available to students on campus that are often overlooked.
