Program Description

The MOSAIC Mentoring Program is an opportunity for ethnic club officers to be mentored and in turn serve as mentors to other students. The program focuses on the academic, cultural, and social integration of students. Participants will build a network of knowledge and support of campus resources, cultural identity development, and community awareness. MOSAIC participants will motivate future SCC students to pursue goals of higher education.
