The full name of our organization is: The Intercultural Mentoring Program Advancing Community Ties. We are a University of Oregon program that aims to tie first-year students with the U of O upperclassmen. In doing so, we hope to make the transition from high school in to higher education an easy and most enjoyable one. We also wish to make life at the U of O a more comfortable, accepting, and culturally responsive experience. Our goal is to foster these relationships through educational programing, social and networking events. WE HONOR THE POWER OF BEING CONNECTED TO A COMMUNITY. --- ACHIEVING THE HIGHEST EXCELLENCE:
Creating a friendly atmosphere for students to be successful in the university, IMPACT is a program that highly encourages students to go beyond the expected and achieve the highest recognition in their core studies.
IMPACT was started by two University of Oregon students in the early 2000s. Originally entitled, the Ethnic Origins Peer MentorProgram (EOPMP), the name IMPACT was adopted.
WHO WE SERVE:
To date, IMPACT serves all types of University of Oregon students from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Led by seven IMPACT Student Coordinators, IMPACT recruits new mentees for each academic year.
