    Academic Inspiration for Minority Success (AIMS)

    The Academic Inspiration for Minority Success (AIMS) Peer Mentoring Program provides individualized assistance to selected students to help them during their first-year transition to Ursuline College. First-year students are paired with a sophomore, junior or senior mentor who will help provide them with emotional and social support as they become acclimated to Ursuline. Mentors provide early exposure to important College resources while advising them on how to be successful during their academic tenure. Freshman will meet with their Peer Mentors several times throughout the academic year and are invited to attend activities sponsored by the Office of Diversity.
