OME Recruiting MAP Faculty and Staff Mentors

Staff

The Office of Minority Education is recruiting faculty and staff mentors for the Mentor Advocate Partnership (MAP) program. The Mentor Advocate Partnership is a volunteer mentoring program for first-year MIT students. MAP seeks to foster the holistic development of students along both academic and non-academic dimensions. At the core of MAP is a sincere, trusting partnership between student and staff that has the potential to persist throughout the undergraduate years. The MAP kick-off/orientation will be held in February 2008. If you are interested in becoming a faculty or staff mentor to an undergraduate student, or would like to recommend a colleague for the program, please contact Lisa Mullan Strack at lstrack@mit.edu or x3-5010.
