This community is open to first-year students who are participating in the Multicultural Mentoring Program sponsored by the office of Multicultural Student Life. This extension of the Multicultural Mentoring Program provides students with a strong support system, balanced with academic enrichment, community building, and campus engagement opportunities.
Community participants will take courses and study together, network with campus and community professionals, and develop interpersonal relationships with peers through meaningful social activities. The connection of our MMP support mechanisms and campus resources will provide students with the confidence and skills that they need to be successful in their first year and beyond at UT.
A completed Multicultural Mentoring Program Mentee Application is required for students to be eligible for this community. Limited space is available, so interested students are encouraged to submit their application early. Students can access the application here.
Students who participate in MMP Connect are expected to attend the fall semester kick-off gathering, small group tutoring/study sessions, social events, and regular meetings with a faculty network representative. Members will also be co-enrolled in community specific courses and are required to register and attend the below courses:
