Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement


We are a collaborative team of staff and student leaders committed to your success. We know your success depends on making strong connections with the community, so we’ve designed this retreat to give you a unique opportunity to do so. Offices represented at this retreat include Academic Advising, Career Center, Student Support Services, Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement, Athletics, Campus Living, Writing Center, Math Skills Center, Watzek Library, College Outdoors, and the office of the Dean of the College and Dean of Students.

In addition to the professional staff members involved with Great Expectations, a group of current students will also be available as peer mentors. Every LEAP Mentor also identifies as a first generation college student or student of color. The LEAP Mentors are trained to work specifically with GE participants. They provide GE participants mentorship, guidance, and friendship!
