Students who are selected to be mentors for RISE are called upon to help usher first year, first generation students of color into Marquette. We strive to develop leaders who are committed to their roles because they understand the impact of assisting their peers on the Marquette campus. In modeling leadership, they contribute to a broader objective that aims to help students succeed and thrive at Marquette. The mentor position is a paid position.
