Mentoring Program

The goal of the Empower Me First Mentoring Program is to  connect first-generation students with a  faculty or staff mentor to assist in building social capital on campus and beyond. The program aims to provide  an additional measure of personal and academic  support for students as they navigate their college experience at the University of Miami  and navigate their pursuit of careers or  graduate  and professional school. 

The program is open to first-generation students.

The Empower Me First mentoring program applications for 2019-2020 are now closed. Please check back with us this summer for more information!
