The Genesis Mentoring Program seeks to ensure the success of underrepresented students, students of color, and first-generation students at LSU by assisting first year and second year students with their transition and connection to the LSU community both socially and academically. While enhancing their intercultural relationships, students aid in creating a more inclusive and culturally humble community. Mentors (upper-division students, either third or fourth year) are paired with first-year and second-year students.
Join the Genesis Mentoring Program as a mentor or mentee.
