The EORO Coordinator will work alongside Marshall College professional staff to recruit and pair up prospective student mentees and mentors, provide social and community-building opportunities for members, and otherwise plan for structured activities such as off-campus trips, bonding, and community service events with the EORO community that bring mentors/mentees closer together; educate students on campus resources; and make the EORO experience a memorable one.
