The AAPI Mentorship Network @SBU was established to connect Stony Brook University’s Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander students to faculty and staff mentors. Mentors are committed to helping this student body excel in a variety of areas, including academic skills, confidence and leadership skills, work/study-life balance, social and racial justice, service and community work, teamwork and people skills, career planning and networking, and research and scholarship skills. Student mentees can benefit from the unique expertise of the mentor they’re working with especially if they take the initiative. This website provides some guidelines and expectations for student mentees and mentors.
This Mentorship Network is about seeing each AAPI student as more than a generic student; it’s about supporting AAPI students who come from different backgrounds, have diverse challenges and talents and aspirations, and to help them grow and succeed as well-rounded persons.
