Applications Now Available for the 2018-19 LGBTQ-Plus Mentoring Program

The U of A LGBTQ-plus Faculty/Staff-Student Mentoring Program is pleased to announce we are accepting applications from LGBTQ-plus faculty and staff who wish to be mentors for LGBTQ-plus students as well as LGBTQ-plus students who wish to participate as mentees.

The goals of this program are to foster mentoring relationships between students and faculty/staff that offer support, guidance and resources to LGBTQ-plus students at the U of A and to expose students to the diverse out-of-classroom lives of adult LGBTQ-plus members of the U of A community. Graduate students can be either mentors or mentees, depending on their needs and experiences.

If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee please contact Sarah Finley, skfinley@uark.edu, for an application or more information.
