Students who are selected to be mentors for RISE are called upon to serve as peer educators throughout their time at Marquette. We strive to develop leaders who are committed to their roles because they understand the impact of helping other students of color on the Marquette campus. In modeling leadership, they contribute to a broader objective that aims to help students who may not otherwise persist, succeed and thrive at Marquette. The mentor position is a paid position.
Expectations of RISE mentors include participating in on-going training and reflection to help them become more aware of themselves as leaders and to better serve the needs of the students they mentor. Some topics included in training and reflection include the following:
RISE mentors are also invited to attend and coordinate educational and social gatherings with the students in their RISE cohort. Examples of these group programs have included the following:
The application and selection of RISE mentors occurs in the spring semester. Application requirements are available on Handshake.
If you have questions about becoming a mentor, please contact Clara Dwyer, Assistant Director in the Center for Engagement and Inclusion.
