Seeking Posse Mentors for New York Posse 3, 4 & Chicago Posse 15

The Posse Foundation identifies diverse public-school students who are primarily first-generation, under-represented and academically high-achieving. These students demonstrate extraordinary leadership potential. As natural leaders they make an unforgettable impact on the college campuses that they attend.
What is the Role of a Posse Faculty Mentor? The Posse mentor is responsible for helping his/her/their Posse have a successful college career. That connection between mentor and scholar often goes beyond the college career into the professional career. In the first two years while on campus, the mentor does this by meeting with the Posse members individually and as a group. In support of the faculty mentor there is a reduced class load in the first two years.
If you wish to nominate yourself or another faculty member, please email Marina J Melendez, Posse Coordinator, & Dean of Juniors & Seniors, Transfers, or email Jefferson Singer. Seeking Faculty Mentors for: Commitment Start Date
