Asian American Mentor Program

The Asian American Mentor Program (AAMP) is designed to ease the transition of new students to UIC during their first semester. In the fall, students are assigned into groups with two Peer Mentors and 3-5 new students for personal support and to help get connected to campus resources.  All AAMP mentees will also sign up for Global Asian Studies 105, a 1-credit course that will have tutors from the math and writing centers who will help you be successful!

AAMP activities consist of AARCC-sponsored events that include social activities, academic and cultural workshops as well as group outings held on and off campus. Check out AAMP’s Activities and Mentor Pages to see past group activities and current mentors.

SUMMER Asian American Mentor Program (AAMP) 2018

The Asian American Mentor Program provides incoming first-year students enrolled in Summer College with peer mentors who will show you around, give you tips for college success, and connect you with campus resources. Students who join AAMP in the summer will also continue on with their mentors in the fall when there will be AAMP workshops, activities, and events. AAMP small groups hold social activities on and off-campus. It’s a great way to ease the transition from high school to college at UIC!

Summer AAMP 2018 will run on Wednesdays from 12 – 2pm starting June 27th and ending August 1st.
