Research shows that undergraduates benefit from multiple sources of mentoring. As a cornerstone of the SOAR program, we have three levels: faculty, near-peer, and peer mentoring.
Faculty from the University of Michigan serve as mentors for SOAR scholars through informal teaching and advising, and formal research mentorship assignments. SOAR faculty mentors support students on their educational journey to graduate school and provide SOAR scholars with a research experience related to HIV/AIDS and SGM populations for at least one academic year.
