Columbia Mentoring Initiative Mentor Application

The OMA Columbia Mentoring Initiative (CMI) is an inter-generational mentorship program that connects first years with returning students (Upper-Class Mentors), and all students with alumni. CMI provides students the opportunity to get involved in various "family trees" - Arab and Middle Eastern, Asian, Black, Indigeous, International, Latinx, LGBTQ+ and Mixed Heritage. Although participants will be asked to specify one family tree, we recognize the multiple identities of our students and provide opportunities for CMI participants to get involved in cross-cultural program-wide events.

The program matches students of different races, nationalities, classes, genders, sexual orientations, and class years. It provides a safer space for discussing topics such as culture shock, communication styles, intercultural conflict styles, social perceptions, and social (dis)comfort. GAP hosts monthly themed intercultural events and ambassador pairs meet up informally to engage in intercultural activities and discussions.
