ALANA FAQs

What is the role of an ALANA mentor?

A mentor can serve many functions in the lives of students; mentors have been described by their students as role models, confidantes, friends, teachers, and advisors.

How do I get involved as a mentee?

Students may apply online to become ALANA mentees at the end of the Fall Semester; a link to the application form will be sent to all self-identifying ALANA students. Students will be matched to mentors for the beginning of the Spring Semester; we will make as many matches as possible based on mentor/mentee preferences. Mentors and mentees will meet each other at a reception held in late January after students have returned to campus.
