Connect Mentorship Program

The Connect Mentorship Program aids incoming students of color become effective, successful and engaged members of Southern Methodist University through peer mentoring. Throughout the program mentors help incoming students develop personally and academically by introducing them to a variety of resources and learning opportunities offered on campus. There are two parts to the program:

Connect Institute

Friday, August 14 - Wednesday, August 19

During the Connect Institute, you will interact with other new students and returning students serving as peer mentors. The Connect Institute will feature SMU faculty, staff, and alumni and provide information about key SMU services and resources.

Peer Mentoring

Upper class students serve as mentors to incoming students. Mentors will be your guide during the Connect Institute, before classes start, and will continue to meet with you throughout the year as needed. If you are unable to attend the Connect Institute you can be paired with a mentor for the academic year only.
