Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) 

The Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) serves students who are first generation and/or economically disadvantaged in their journey to receive their undergraduate degree.  We do this by cultivating sustainable relationships between faculty mentors and our FMP student proteges. Faculty mentors provide students with social and instrumental support, so that students find the resources they need, engage in new leadership opportunities, and plan for their future
