L&S Mentors Mission Statement

The L&S Mentors Program augments UCB’s College of Letters & Science Undergraduate Advising services by providing graduate student mentors who serve as a bridge between the student and faculty experience at UC Berkeley.

Mentors offer support designed to increase student engagement, enhance academic achievement, teach academic success strategies, and encourage exploration of academic fields that align with student's intellectual curiosity.

Through one-on-one and group sessions, Mentors help students navigate the campus’s academic and social opportunities and resources, demystify the college experience, and ultimately help build confidence, self-esteem, and maximize potential.  The Mentor program actively supports diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging across the UCB campus.
