Region 6 Advising Mentoring Program (RAMP)

RAMP pairs new advisors with a more seasoned advisor for a year of intentional mentorship during which they build relationships, establish and work toward professional goals, and develop a leadership platform with support from their mentor.

Applications for the 2025-2026 cohort are anticipated to launch in January 2025.
