Posted September 22, 2021

Do you know of an AAPI student who would benefit from mentorship? Metropolitan State received a grant from the Department of Education to improve and expand the university's capacity to serve AAPI students. A key goal is to connect students with Metro graduates through a mentorship program.

  • Help the student explore different skills, abilities and career possibilities
  • Assist the student in navigating the challenge of being a student, parent, professional, and caregiver
  • Introduce the student to others in the field, expanding her/his network
