Mosaic provides peer mentorship to first- year students who identify as students of color, Indigenous,  LGBTQIA, and/or first- generation students. The goal of DML’s peer mentorship model is to connect first years with returning peers who share similar identities and shared experiences.

Are you a first year student interested in finding a peer mentor who shares a similar experience and can help you navigate your first year? If so, please complete the Mosaic Mentorship interest form to be considered.
