We are committed to cultivating and modeling intercultural relationships at Providence College and to a philosophy of collective mentoring. Mentees are often matched with mentors who differ from them in some ways while also having some common interests, major and so on. If you have any questions, you may email or call the advisor, Elena Yee, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-865-1525.
