Connecting Students at USD

The Link Peer Mentoring Program is designed to assist first-year and transfer students from underrepresented and underserved populations with their college transition by pairing them with a peer mentor who provides guidance, support and resources. Benefits to participation include learning about resources and opportunities at USD; attending educational, cultural and social events sponsored by the United Front Multicultural Center (UFMC) and other campus organizations and departments; and, meeting other students, faculty and staff.

The program’s goals are: (1) to enhance retention among underrepresented and underserved student populations; (2) to offer leadership opportunities; (3) to provide resources and a support system for new students as they transition into USD’s academic and student life; (4) to inspire the development of friendships and community; and (5) to encourage student involvement in campus and community events.

Mentees must be a first-year or transfer USD student in Fall 2011. Applications can be sent to United Front Multicultural Center, 5998 Alcala Park, Student Life Pavilion 418, San Diego, CA 92110 or emailed to mpf@sandiego.edu by the Aug. 5, 2011 deadline. After applications have been reviewed, the Link Coordinator will be in contact with program details. Applications can be downloaded at the United Front Website.
