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.

When I was 7 I was cutting my toe nails with my hands, and everything was fine until I got to my pinkie toe. When I started cutting the tear went all the way down so I ended up tearing off my whole pinkie nail. There was a lot of blood but it’s ok now because it grew back. :) Now I only use nail clippers.
