Great Expectations Mentorship (GEM) Program

The Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement’s peer mentor program, Great Expectations Mentorship (GEM) is designed to support incoming BIPOC and/or First-Generation new students with their transition to Lewis & Clark College. New BIPOC and/or First-Generation students who sign up for GEM will be considered a GEM Mentee and will be paired with a GEM Mentor (a second-year or older student). GEM Mentors are student leaders trained to assist you in your transition to L&C and will help get you connected to our campus community and resources! With other GEM Mentees and your Mentor, you will have the opportunity to engage in other IME programs together and take part in our weekly GEM Gatherings.
