Alumni Multicultural Mentoring Program

Students of color are connecting with alumni through the CSP Alumni Multicultural Mentoring Program (AMMP) in hopes of formulating not just a relationship but a partnership in their success. This new initiative has brought together people like Shiori Silver '13 and Natalie Vang '18 who, after conversing online, connected in person at the ACPA Convention 2017 (pictured). We are grateful to have alumni who support and contribute to the Western Illinois University CSP community for the next generation of Student Affairs professionals!
