The Multicultural Mentorship program is a peer mentoring program designed and designated for students from any underrepresented identities, such as students of color, first-generation students, low income students, LGBTQ+ students, students with disabilities, international students, veteran students, or students from religious minorities. The program assists with the first-year transition into the Augusta University community through exclusive social, personal, and professional development opportunities.
