Powerful Connections mentors

August 17 through 21, 2014

Welcome to Salisbury University on behalf of the Office of Multicultural Student Services!

Our office has sponsored the Intercultural Orientation Program for Students of Diverse Backgrounds (i.e. Powerful Connections) for the past eleven years. We are very pleased that you have selected Salisbury University as your destination to receive a quality education. Our goal is to provide opportunities for you to connect with upper-class students of color through our Peer Mentor Program and to become acclimated with the campus, as well as the Office of Multicultural Student Services and its programs, through this experience. Our program has been a vital link for new students of color and their success at the University.

Please plan to join us on August 17-21, 2014 as you establish connections that will last a lifetime!

Program Goals:

  • To pre-orient students of diverse backgrounds to Salisbury University
