Diversity Mentorship Program
Diversity Mentorship Program
High Point University has a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as core components of our mission and values. In an effort to provide support for prospective minority students, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion has partnered with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions’ Diversity Recruitment Board to create the Diversity Mentorship Program. The purpose of the Diversity Mentorship Program is to provide a smooth transition to college for our students in underrepresented communities by offering insight, perspectives, and resources that are complementary of the student. With the continuous belief that mentorship matters, the program will pair incoming and prospective minority students with current minority HPU students as well as provide connections with reflective faculty and staff members.
