Alliance College LINK Mentor Program (ACLMP)

The Alliance College LINKMentor Program (ACLMP) is open to all freshmen Alliance students. The purpose of this program is geared towards supporting students to have a successful transition to CSUSM over the summer through the end of their freshmen year. The ACLMP consists of two programs:       

  1. Peer Mentoring: Peer mentoring is a voluntary, one-on-one mentorship between a student (Mentee) and a CSUSM student (Peer Mentor). Peer Mentors inspire, encourage, support and contribute to a student’s academic and personal development.
  2. STEM Faculty Mentoring: The purpose of STEM Faculty Mentoring is to support student engagement and development in the student’s STEM education and creative initiatives. By connecting with faculty, it opens the door to infinite research opportunities. STEM students who are a part of ACLMP will also have a STEM faculty mentor.
