The Center is a centralized resource for all undergraduate and graduate students.
The Center provides comprehensive support to CMU students through academic and cultural programming, a supportive and inclusive community space, as well as expert advising and mentoring.
The Center supports and connects historically underrepresented students and those who are first in their family to attend college in a setting where students’ differences and talents are guided, appreciated, and reinforced. We offer programs and initiatives that increase awareness and engage the community in support of this commitment. At the core and intersection of many of our initiatives is mentoring.
A true mentorship focuses on the professional and personal development of the mentee. A healthy mentorship encompasses active listening, empathy, advice giving, support, open communication and respect.
