Vision Community Volunteers
This year, the Bolinga Center is providing an extra layer of support for students serving as mentors as well as their first year mentees. Volunteers are invited to serve as "Family Members" for the academic "families" composed of student VISION Mentors and their mentees. There will also be graduate assistants serving as retention counselors and other support staff to maintain a "high touch", intensive program that yields maximum support to some of the students who need it most. This model has been used successfully on other campuses and we hope to create the same optimum learning environment here, at Wright State University. Learning communities formed by committed University and Bolinga staff, concerned volunteer “family members” and well informed Peer Mentors promise to make this program a great success.
Please consider what you may have to offer a continuing or first year African or African American student in their quest to be successful and then complete the attached application. Applications should be returned to the Bolinga Center at 140 Millett and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Questions or concerns may be directed to Dr. Dana Murray Patterson at email@example.com or (937) 775-5696.
