SMART Start Program

  • The Student Mentoring Academic Resource Team (SMART) Start Program is designed to empower new students who are historically underrepresented in higher education. Participants are matched with an upperclass MSUM student mentor, many of whom have been SMART Start mentees in the past. Students engage in activities to share their diverse cultures and identities, participate in workshops to learn about resources available on campus, and develop a support network among their peers, staff, and faculty. The mission of the program is to ensure that each new Dragon has the resources needed to achieve their personal, academic and career goals.

    We are currently revising this program if you have any questions please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
