Supporting POC Students in Predominantly White Institutions

The first installment of our Voices of iMentor video series features NYC Program team members Anastasia Hardin and Keith Johnson, discussing how to support POC students navigating predominantly white institutions.

The dialogue is informed by Keith and Anastasia’s personal experiences attending predominantly white universities, and by their work supporting iMentor NYC students. They share how they eventually found their own communities on campus, and how they actively fostered a sense of belonging for themselves. They encourage mentors and students to remember that success in college is not just about academics; the social and emotional aspects really matter. Watch this video for a great mix of personal insights and practical tips.
