Mentors put into practice advocacy, problem solving, communication skills, mentoring, and program planning. Students selected, as OLI Mentors, will:

  • Commit to serve as a mentor for the entire academic year (Fall-Spring).
  • Enroll and participate in the following Oregon Leadership Institute Courses:
    • Fall term - Identity and Diversity CG191 (4 credits)

I am excited you will be embarking on this journey with the rest of the team. This promises to be an exciting year. If you allow yourself to truly be challenged as a leader you will grow along other student leaders. Are you ready to take this challenge?
