Laney EDGE Virtual Programming for 2020-2021

P2P Grad Connect: Peer to Peer BIPOC Mentoring Program

Many times, we think about mentoring in the most traditional academic definitions; however, mentoring is a collaborative learning relationship that is not restricted to the classroom or laboratory. Especially during these times, mentoring is being utilized as a means to stay connected, get involved, and feel community.

Therefore, the Office for Racial and Cultural Engagement (RACE) and Laney EDGE are launching P2P Grad Connect: A Peer to Peer BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) Mentoring Program. This initiative will connect early career Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and APIDA LGS students with advanced LGS students.  

The 1st cohort has begun, if you have any questions about being involved in this program please contact
