Dear CSUMB Students of African Heritage:

In partnership with the Office of Inclusive Excellence (OIE) and the Center for Black Student Success (CBSS), the African Heritage Faculty and Staff Alliance is offering small group mentoring opportunities for students who wish to participate. Students who sign up will join a mentor family under the leadership and direction of a faculty or staff professional of color or designated ally. Some benefits are:

  • Connections to others
  • College guidance and support
  • Networking
  • Problem-solving and resources
  • Career development
  • Long-lasting relationships and more!

Overall, the goal is to reduce stress, anxiety, and isolation to increase academic productivity, retention, and graduation rates.

Interested? Join a Zoom meet and greet meeting on Fridays at 11:00 am. - 12:00 pm and 2:30 - 3:30 pm for Incoming freshmen, transfer students, and all returning students are welcome. Join the Zoom Meeting.
