Men of Color Mentoring


The Men of Color Mentoring Program

The Men of Color (MOC) Mentoring Program is facilitated by the Black Collegians and Adelante Programs.  Through the MOC Mentoring Program, SMC male students are mentored by SMC faculty/staff who identify as men of color.  Students attend group activities throughout the semester.  All the mentors are also invited to the activities with the goal of building community with all the program's mentors.  In addition, each mentor/mentee pair are responsible for meeting on a one-to-one basis, twice during the semester.  There are a total of 4 required meetings (2 group & 2 one-to-one) during each fall and spring semester but there a several activities for participants to feel connected to our community.
