Sister-2-Sister/Brother-2-Brother Program

                                              
 

The Sister-2-Sister and Brother-2-Brother programs (launched in the fall of 2008) have been organized to address institutional concerns regarding the academic success rates of Latin and African-American students, as well as to respond to requests by students, to have more formalized opportunities for this type of programming. Our mission is to provide additional support, mentoring, and encouragement to students, as they work towards their academic and professional goals. Sister-2-Sister and Brother-2-Brother is committed to the personal, academic, social and cultural development of each member by:

  • Equipping them with the necessary tools and resources to pursue, achieve and maintain academic excellence
  • Encouraging them to cultivate positive peer and adult relationships
  • Helping them engage in their learning process
  • Promoting student leadership and service to the community
