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.
Senior Marshal is an honor bestowed upon members of the graduating class who have demonstrated achievement in their academics and co-curricular activities at Columbia University. Honorees are distinguished at Columbia College and Columbia Engineering class day ceremonies and University Commencement by the gold aiguillettes that adorn their graduation gowns.
In addition to holding a place of honor in the processions, senior marshals are responsible for helping to assemble and lead their classmates at graduation events.
The program fee is $100.00 per student and covers food, transportation, and night activities during the week. Our application process is completely need-blind. We are able to offer financial aid support to students with a demonstated need.
All current first-year undergraduate students in BC, CC, and SEAS are eligible to apply for the program. All majors are encouraged to apply, as we want to focus on students who have had minimal exposure to the startup and tech ecosystem of New York!
