MESAS Students as Mentors

Our MESAS IGERT students will have the opportunity to serve as mentors/tutors for undergraduate students; their time commitment will be a minimum of five hours per week when they are receiving MESAS funding. The goal is to have MESAS students serve as role models to encourage undergraduates to pursue degrees in marine science fields, as well as have the rural and native undergraduate student share their experiences and challenges with western cultures and rural and Native cultures.
