MAP Mentoring

WashU's Minorities in Philosophy (MAP) chapter offers mentoring for undergraduate students

Philosophy is not always hospitable for women, minorities, or first-generation college students.  In an effort to combat this problem, the Minorities and Philosophy chapter at WashU, with support from the American Philosophical Association and the Department of Philosophy, has established the MAP mentoring program to encourage and support philosophy undergraduates from underrepresented groups.  The goal of the MAP mentoring program is to provide academic support and leadership, research, and service experiences for such students, equipping them to accomplish their future education and career goals.

What undergraduate mentees can expect: 

  • Meetings with your mentor once a month throughout the academic school year. 
  • Participating in MAP chapter events including: talks with visiting philosophers from underrepresented groups, opportunities to establish strong supporting networks with peers and mentors, and free food!

This is a great way to connect with a mentor who can offer you insight, advice, opportunities – and help you navigate the next stage/s of your career.

Undergraduate students who are interested in participating should apply using the link below.
