The Men’s and Women’s Matriculation Institute is a four-year program that will also involve the Mentoring Initiative, which will include workshops, speaker series, and one-on-one mentoring. Subject matter experts with demonstrated expertise as motivational life coaches and demonstrated skills in connecting with and motivating our target demographics will be selected to serve as speakers, workshop leaders, and mentors.

Dedicated University employees will coordinate workshop leaders, speakers, and mentors, with one coordinator focusing on males and the other focusing on females. To enhance efficacy and speed of implementation, the University coordinators will leverage the expertise of well-regarded organizations and individuals who have established track records in the mentoring arena— including professional motivational speakers, non-profits, fraternities, and sororities. Interested and capable faculty and staff will also be invited to participate.
