Mentors are undergraduate students at Wingate University who identify or empathize with students who are historically underrepresented in higher education. Mentors provide academic support and guidance to small groups of scholars. Program directors provide mentors with training to implement the Wayfind curriculum. The directors also organize social and team-building activities for mentors. 

To become a Wayfind mentor, Wingate students should have a minimum GPA of 3.0, submit two letters of recommendation from a faculty member or supervisor, and successfully complete an interview with program directors.

The Mentor Application will reopen January 2023.
