Executive Board

Meet the Board

PMP is led by a group of dedicated and organized students who make up the program’s executive team. They are in charge of planning and running community-wide events, organizing mentor training workshops and offering support to both mentors and mentees throughout the year. They benefit from access to faculty, administrators and other professional contacts. Their work with PMP provides them with professional experience in community building, event planning, managing budgets and more.

If you’re interested in becoming a member of the executive board, come back to this page in late January or early February for application process information.
