Peer Mentorship Programs

B.O.S.S. (Building Ourselves through Sisterhood and Service)


B.O.S.S. aims to foster healthy and genuine relationships between upperclassmen and underclassmen women of color, promote positive social interactions within the community of women on campus, encourage high academic and personal standards, provide access to helpful campus resources, and inspire community involvement and commitment to service.  


S.W.A.G. (Scholars Working Ambitiously to Graduate)


S.W.A.G. is a mentorship program geared towards increasing retention and graduation rates among Black and Latinx men at Cornell University. We achieve this goal through academic enrichment, professional development, and community building.
