Spring 2024

Program Activities

This Spring, the Faculty of Color Mentorship Program presents three Small Interest Groups, each of which focuses on an area of interest. These topics are based upon the popular interests mentors and mentees identified. Each interest group is led by one or two faculty with luminous speakers who will share their insights. These groups hold their own events and discussions. You are invited to participate in one or more groups. 

Please find below the flyers of the three groups, which explain their upcoming activities. To join a group, simply contact the persons listed in the flyers.
