ALMA Mentorship Program


Being a true Wolverine takes a lot of work.

That's why we're here to help! On behalf of the ALMA Mentorship Committee, I would like to welcome you to the University of Michigan! I hope your first few steps on campus were memorable and well-spent during your time in ALMA!

The ALMA Mentorship Program (AMP) is a supplement to the Assisting Latinos to Maximize Achievement (ALMA). The program ensures that the ALMA community stays connected throughout the academic year and is informed of what is happening in the Latino community. The ALMA Mentorship Committee (AMC), responsible for the AMP, consists of four members: Evelyn Galvan, Alexa Lynch, Angela Rondon and Melvin Walker III.

The goals of the committee are to offer guidance to incoming first-year students, maintain connections between ALMA members as well as faculty and staff, and to keep the ALMA family united. Each ALMA participant will have the opportunity to be paired up with an upperclassmen that has similar academic and extracurricular interests as themselves. Mentors and mentees will stay in contact throughout the academic year by meeting with each other and attending several events hosted by AMP and other organizations on campus. Each pair is required to meet at least once a month to discuss certain topics specific to the time of year and relevant to all aspects of the mentees' first year on campus. By holding and informing mentors and mentees of academic, social and cultural events, ALMA values are carried out throughout the entire year. ALMA participants are then able to see all aspects and resources that are available to them at the University of Michigan.
