MSP is a student-run networking and mentoring program dedicated to the goal of academic excellence. Student coordinators, in collaboration with faculty and deans, plan workshops designed to communicate the wisdom and experience of upperclassmen to new students. Open to all students in all disciplines, MSP sponsors workshops, panel discussions, trips to graduate school fairs, as well as convening informal gatherings that foster mentoring.
The Multicultural Scholars Program is funded in part by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
