LGBTQ+ Mentorship Program
The LGBTQ+ Mentorship Program provides a space for you to meet new people and learn more about the LGBTQ+ community at the University of North Dakota.
Our mentors are out faculty, staff, and graduate students who are comfortable in their identity. They are here to help you navigate campus and get you connected to resources that will help you make the most of your UND experience.
The LGBTQ+ mentorship program is based on a group mentoring model. Program participants are paired with 1-2 other students to a mentor. Mentoring group expectations include:
- Attending at least 1 campus event together as a group per month during the academic year
- Meeting informally as a group at least 2 times each semester
