Student Mentors are returning students that provide nurturing one-on-one attention and advice, serve as a big brother or big sister and share information to help new students succeed at MICA. The relationships established between students in the network help empower them to transform ideas and aspirations into realities.

"Making a Difference" is the network’s motto. A variety of educational workshops and other activities are also planned throughout the year for participants by the Office of Diversity and Intercultural Development (D.I.D.) Programming Committee.
