Find Community. Make Connections. Be Yourself.
The DISC's Mentoring Program pairs upperclassmen, faculty, and staff who are secure in their LGBTQ+ identity with LGBTQ+ students needing support. The goal of the program is to create a mutually respectful, supportive, and encouraging relationship. Mentors will support their student mentees in navigating campus and the community, developing a positive view of their identities as LGBTQ+ students, and finding a network of friends and allies.

Do I have to be LGBTQ to participate in this program?
Preference will be given to applicants for mentor positions who identify as LGBTQ+. Mentors should be those who identify as LGBTQ+ or those who have personal or professional experiences working with LGBTQ+ individuals. The purpose of this program is to identify those on campus who have thought critically about their LGBTQ+ identity to provide support to those who are currently working through their LGBTQ+ identities.
Do I have to be 'out' to become a mentee?
No, mentorships are completely confidential and are open to students who are exploring their identities.
