Mentorship is the central part of the AAMS Initiative. As an AAMS participant, you will be partnered with an African American male Saint Louis University faculty/staff member or SLU alumnus. Your mentor will support you in many ways, including
- Helping you to understand yourself in the context of the larger community and demonstrate pride in your own cultural heritage.
- Assisting you in building positive relationships with your peers, faculty, staff, and members of the local community.
- Providing exposure to campus and community resources that will enable you to realize your potential for academic success and to impact the campus and community as servant leaders.
- Helping you to advocate for yourself and others.
