The Multicultural Mentorship program is a peer mentoring program designed and designated for Augusta University's students from minoritized identities. The MMP assists with the first-year transition into the Augusta University community. First-year students will be paired with upper-level students to aid in their adjustment to college life and Augusta University. All participants will engage in social, personal, and professional development opportunities that are exclusive to the program.
MMP applications are now open to first-year students for the 2023-2024 school year!
The African American Male Initiative (AAMI) is a leadership development program designed to cultivate the talents and abilities of African American male students to support their academic and future career goals. Our goal is to promote student success and improve graduation rates through social and academic networks. Through collaborating with university and community partners, we intend to connect students with others to envision their future, to explore their passions, and to actively engage in their college experience.
AAMI applications are now open to first-year students for the 2023-2024 school year!
