Mentors will provide guidance, share experiences, offer advice, and assist mentees in navigating Chan’s educational system. The program will run for 2024-2025 academic year, with structured activities, workshops, and networking opportunities to facilitate meaningful connections and growth.If you identify as first-generation staff and faculty in SM departments, please kindly complete this survey. The  survey aims to collect information on the interest in participating in events designed for first-generation mentors and mentees and offering support to students who are part of the mentorship program.
